lol you cant modify it just like that , you need to edit the actual html file with notepad and re-upload

edit or use the builtin html editor,if your site provider have one

Do you have the actual HTML Code?
IT should look like this
<Script Language="JavaScript">
If Blah= Blah then BLAHBLAHBLAH

You need to insert that code into the actual page that you are wanting to add the button to. For example, if you want to add it to your main page, on your sever you should find a file called index.htm or index.html and in some cases index.aspx ECT. anyways Right click on that file and go to edit (Sometimes you may need to download the file, this depends on your OS and the Servers proxies and permissions) then insert the code wherever you want DONT FORGET WHERE IT IS and then reupload the file or save it.

If that isnt your issue, sometimes ctrl+c (for copying text and ECT.) doesnt work try highlighting the html and right clicking on it and hit copy. Then paste it into your document.
