Saving html files in Tag Editor

I am translating html files with TagEditor, using the standard DTD provided by Trados (Version 6.5). When I want to save the target file in html format, it does save the file, but does not actually save it in any format. I always have to manually add the "html" extension later. Otherwise everything works fine. Any idea about how to avoid this extra step?

File, Save as, and you will see the option Save target as; here you will see the dialogue box where the arrow allows you to choose (among other options) saving the file as xml. That is it (at least this is how I get the html files in my TagEditor).
Good luck.

Thanks for your reply. Are you sure I should save them as "xml". I thought I needed to save the target as html, that's what the client needs anyway. And that is what I have been doing and it does not work.

Excuse me! Dec 6, 2004

Sorry, in the Save target as dialogue box you only have the choice HTML documents (Target Only). You cannot miss it!
This action changes the HTML you have received from your client. In case you have the Source HTML document when you save, you have to click on Refresh in the HTML file in order to update the source document with the translation.
Hope this works for you too.

Sounds just like what I've been doing, I don't seemed to have expressed myself too well. I save it in the way you suggest, but the file is not actually saved in html-format, it just is being saved as file without any format at all and I always have to add the .html extension manually after which everything works fine. I was looking for a way to solve that problem.
