A web browser can't run/execute PHP by itself, you need a webserver with PHP capabilities.

A very easy way to get started with this on windows is to install XAMPP. It's easy to install and comes with tons of documentation.

Open the saved file with a browser.

EDIT: My mistake, it was late at night yesterday: you do need more than a web browser to run php (something I took for granted since I use OS X and had enabled things a while back)

but if it's just html a web browser is fine, but it doesn't hurt to get php capability ahead of time.

FYI, another reason I just said that was because novin mentioned "im starting with HTML" –  Vervious Aug 15 '10 at 17:44
    
So, are you using OS X or not? Notepad++ is a Windows app. –  crazysim Aug 16 '10 at 1:42
    
I use both OSes... –  Vervious Aug 16 '10 at 6:53
