Help with opening xhtml on mac

Asked By 20 points N/A Posted on -


I use TextEdit when opening xhtml on mac, but when I open the .html file in the Safari browser it displays what is written in TextEdit. I am new to the program so I know this is an easy fix, any help would be appreciated.

Help with opening xhtml on mac


Hello Timothy,

The most likely reason is that TextEdit is saving the file as a rich text file and not as a plain text file. In TextEdit you should try from keyboard Command-Shift-T, that help toggle between plain text or rich text.

You should try saving the file as a plain text file and try to view it Safari browser. This should solve the problem.

I would also suggest avoid creating XHTML files, its simply XML + HTML, instead you should concentrate on either plain HTML or HTML5.
