When saving files Dreamweaver always shows the Save As Template prompt

(TechNote) When you try to save a non-template file (for example, a .html file), Dreamweaver always shows the Save As Template dialog box.

This usually means that your non-template file contains Dreamweaver template markup tags. This can occur if you saved a template file (a .dwt file) as a .htm file (or .php, .asp, etc.). This is not the correct way to create a new page from a template.
