are you naming it "/index.html"? If so that / probably make the file name invalid. That could be it. Are you using sublime text 2?

I am using sublime text 2. I am not naming it that. First I tried just command S and that didn't work. It gave me the backslash, then I just tried to file save it as, and even though I typed it in correctly, it still came back with a backslash in front of the name. Thank you for your response.

Maybe you are opening the file or using it in other text editor so it can't override it. I hope I got your question correctly.
