PHP not working

I recently downloaded the Xampp software and installed it as written in the instructions. Now, I started Apache server and mySQL. When I test PHP using the tests on the sample page at, the tests work.
Then I made a PHP web page and stored it withing htdocs folder. The server recognises the HTML code within my PHP code and shows it out correctly in the browser, but doesn't recognise the PHP code. Do I need to activate/start something that I may have missed?
Please reply ASAP.
Thanks a lot

yes notepad works for writing php script as well.
Only thing, when u save it, save it as "<filename>.php"- with the quotes... then it correctly recognises the php script.
