You did right, it's what I do (on Linux) all the time. But I remember
from quick-editing html pages at work with Notepad, that this sh*ty
little program puts a ".txt" suffix on every file it edits. So you
could either: 
  a) use a real text editor like Vim (vim.org) or
  b) closely examine the saved file in the Explorer (with "show
  endings for known file types" or so turned ON) and rename it to

This should help.
