Html page generator question

I have a list of phrases in MS Excel and want to automatically create
individual html pages based on each phrase.

The html page should have the title tag, page name and first word as
the corresponding keyword from Excel.

So, the page would look like this:

<title>Keyword Phrase</title>
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html;

Keyword Phrase 

and would be called: keyword_phrase.htm

And I want to automatically do this from the list of phrases in Excel or a txt file.

This option looks best:

Excel-to-HTML converter (macro) 

But it asks you to save the file in the macro location, but I dont
know where this is? I am running xp proffesional and Excel 2002.
