converting svg code to svg file

I have a svg image that looks like this:

This is the code for my svg image.

<svg width="100" height="100">
  <circle cx="50" cy="50" r="40" stroke="green" stroke-width="4" fill="yellow" />

Open in new window

How do I convert this svg code to a file with a .svg file extension?

So for example,  I want to save it to a svg file called YellowCircle.svg

See I want to use this svg image on a web page but I don't want to use the code I just want to use the file.

See on my web page I want to use it like this:

 <a href=""><img src="images/YellowCircle.svg"></a> 

Open in new window

Save your code as a new html page, then open it in IE or whatever browser you fancy, right click on the svg and choose "Save picture as". Give it a name and enjoy your new svg.
