Found the solution to the problem. I followed these simple steps:Prevent html code from showing in browser If your using a mac:

  1. Open TextEdit.
  2. Choose Preferences from the TextEdit application menu.
  3. Click the Plain Text radio button for New Document Format.
  4. Under Saving, click the checkbox to turn off "Append '.txt' extension to plain text files."
  5. Under Rich text processing, click the checkbox to turn on "Ignore rich text commands in HTML files."
  6. Be sure the checkbox for "Wrap to Page" is deselected.

Hi, it would be helpful if you had replied to yourself as an answer, this has two benefits:

1) People can see what your initial problem was 2) It closes the discussion as an "Answered" Question, which is what my answer will now do.

Congrats and best wishes,
