What you just showed us is not valid HTML code.  Maybe that's the problem. 😉

 

First define your local site folder.  Go to Site > New Site. 

Select a folder on your local hard drive for your project files.  For example, C:\MyTestSite\.

Hit OK.

 

Go to File > New > New Document > HTML and hit the CREATE button.

 

The resulting code is a valid HTML document.  Double-click in Live view panel to add/edit text in the panel. See screenshot.
