The specifics of the last step will depend on how you edit your website. Most desktop website tools like Dreamweaver, Frontpage, or GoLive offer a "code view" that lets you see the code that makes up your page. Near the end of the page where you are hosting your work, before you see </body></html>, paste in the code copied in the previous step by clicking the page and hitting ctrl-v (command-v on a Mac).
