w3c validator question

To Whom it May Concern:

I am not sure who/where to ask about this, but will give you a try.  Please
direct me to the right department to answer my question.
I will of course need step by step directions with screenshots if possible
as I am new to HTML code writing.

I recently bought a book with software called HTML Complete Course a Seybold
Seminar Publication.  Page 39 of this 2003 edition of this Wiley Published
book shows a slightly different w3c screenshot page, but I imagine that is
because it is an updated screenshot on your site.  Here is the code I wish
to have validated.

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-
//W3C //DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional //EN""DTD/xhtml1 - transitional.dtd">
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
<head>
<title>Page Title</title>
<meta http -equiv="Content -Type" content="text/html; charset =utf - 8"/>
</head>
<body> Add the page content here.</body>
</html>

I am successful with every aspect of this program with the exception of the
w3c validator. Unfortunately without this validation I can no longer process
it appears.

Have tried numerous times to validate this code and have been told that w3c
cannot validate my document because its content type is text/plain and not
supported by your service.  I have saved my files as html files (not text)
and so this makes no sense to me as to why it doesn't get validated.

Please advise as to what I can do to change this.  I have tried to contact
Wiley and also Seybold without success and thus I ask for your assistance.
Thank you.
