	The file extension you type in does not make the difference. Check 
the "Save file as Type" dropdown box.  The default value is "Source 
(.htm)," which will include HTML markup no matter what the filename.ext is.

	But you want to change that to save file as "Plain text (.txt)".  (I'm 
basing this on Netscape 1.1 (not beta) for Windows.)  Then you'll find that the 
version you've saved does not include the HTML markup.
