Editing posts in Wordpress

When I go to edit a post, there's a visual option and HTML option. But when I click on HTML, what's in the editing box is the same as when the Visual option is engaged. In other words, there's no HTML in the HTML mode. Can anyone tell me what I need to do to get the HTML going? Thanks

Hi Power,
The HTML option is for HTML code and any code customizations you wish to add.
If you are unfamiliar with them, then just use the visual editor.
If you don’t want to be bothered by HTML formatting code, use the visual editor.
If you want to learn some basic HTML code to use for your posts then this may help..
