I am completly new to all things HTML. I'm having a problem with the Starbuzz project. created the Starbuzz file and put in the words. Then closed down the file and reopened it like the book told me. Now I can't change any of the text or add the "tags". I'm sure I did something wrong, I just can't figure out what. Please help!

Are you using the editor or the browser to view the content?

If you're using the editor and you can't edit, did the file get locked somehow? (e.g. on Mac OSX Lion, a file is locked after a couple of weeks and to edit, you have to make a duplicate).

Hope this helps.

Maybe you forgot to save it as the "*.html" suffix?? or you should save it as "UTF-8" style . Try .
