Why can't I use Notepad for html?

I am in the early stages of learning html, but I seem to have a fundamental problem. After typing out the code in Notepad.exe and going to 'save as' I am presented with 'save as type' which I leave on 'Text Documents[*.txt) And underneath, the encoding options which are:
Unicode big endian

Does anyone know which of these I need to select so I can view the results in my browser?
At the moment it is not saving in html format at all. I am using Windows XP. Thanks.

you hae to save the file like so; MYFILE.html not .txt To make sure save like this "MYFILE.html"

PS don't worry bout the encodinig thing. Leave it as is.
