      Why are you clicking on HTML and where? 

      If you click on "HTML" in the text box, you're telling the system that you're going to paste in some code. If you then write ordinary words, it won't be able to interpret it, so either nothing will show in 'preview', or you'll get an error.

      The beauty of HubPages is that you don't need to know any code, you just type your text into the text capsules like you would in Word or any other word processor.  You're over-complicating things!

      Here's a Hub explaining about capsules and how to use them:

      You could probably do with reading the other Hubs in the series, too.
