Firefox shows HTML Codes

Hello, everyone!

I am new here, as well as, new in everything about computers. I am learning to build sites through HTML. So, being not a techie, please bear with me if my questions are so basic and sometimes, idiotic.

First off, I added at the end of HTML document, after <hr /> but before </body> tags, a hyperlink button tag. The codes I tried are:

(a) <a href="index1.html#clickbank><img src="images/home.gif"
alt="Home Page" />Home</a>

(b) <a href="index1.html><img src="images/home.gif"
alt="Home Page" />Home</a>

Then, index1.html has this code at the end for a named anchor:

(a) <a name="clickbank"></a> for (a) to link to.
(b) I deleted named anchor so that (b) would work.

But on both instances, firefox browser does not show the web page. It shows all the HTML codes of the page. I don't know what is the version of my firefox browser. Also, my DTD is HTML 4.01 Transitional. They might give you ideas that made the page go wrong.

What possibly goes wrong?

Thanks a lot for all your help.

I found the answer to my query. I saved it in text, not in .html. So, don't bother to answer. Thanks.
