Good morning!

Merry Christmas to everyone!

I'm new at html and I'm trying to appear an html example using a browser.

I use Windows XP Professional and inside the Local Disk (C:) i have created a text document named Example.html and i have written inside it :

<TITLE> Title of my page
Merry Christmas!!!

Then i open a web browser e.g. microsoft explorer or mozilla
I type on the address bar C:\Example.html

And a small window appears saying: Windows cannot find 'C:\Example.html'.Check the spelling and try again.

Then if i type on the address bar C:\Example.html.txt it shows all the code of the file Example.html

What shall i do in order to get->> Merry Christmas!!! <<- in the browser?

Thanks, in advance!!!

Rename ur Example.html.txt file with this Example.html
Remove .txt from the end

Well in the end there is no .txt extension,i have removed it.

But the browser cannot find Example.html

and it outputs File not found
Firefox can't find the file at /C:/Example.html.
What shall i do?

thanks,in advance!

I thought with Firefox you had to use file:/// in front of anything stored on your hard drive. When I try to just do C:/, it returns "Firefox doesn't know how to open this address, because the protocol (c) isn't associated with any program."
