The most likely problem is that in your html editor (Dreamweaver, Frontpage, etc.) you are not using the 'paste special' or 'paste html' command. What you need to do is go into the actual code view of your site (or simply open the page in a text based editor like notepad) and paste the code we provided directly into your page's HTML.

More information on pasting the code can be found by logging into your account and clicking Help Center > How To's
