Please cancel my question about how to change the text. I figured it out!
Here is the link where it's explained how to change the syntaxhttp://community.linuxmint.com/tutorial/view/1144
Basically, you go to the bottom right corner of the Sublime text screen and I saw the
word "plain." I just clicked and selected "HTML"
and now it works!
Thanks for that advice!! It was perfect..
I'm off and running now!
Best wishes to you,
