      It looks OK to me but do know what browser the Mac running ,I do not know
      what a Mac uses for text editor i.e. notepad in windows, you should be able
      to put the basic page in to text editor and rename it "new.html" and it
      should work try below.
      <title>My first HTML page</title>
      <p>Hello world.</p>
