Donna asks…

My Tumbkr won’t let me put in customized HTML codes for themes?

I go onto a website that has tumblr themes. I find a theme i like and the instructions go something like this;
How To Install:
1. Copy the code in the text area to the left.
2. Login to your Tumblr account and click Account in the top navigation, then click Preferences when the drop down appears.
3. Click the Customize your blog button in the top right corner.
4. Click the Appearance tab at the top left.
5. When the sub menu pops up, click Reset defaults at the bottom. When the alert window appears, click OK.
6. Now click the Theme tab at the top left, when the window appears, click Use custom HTML (if you’ve already used custom html, you will be taken directly to your current html code code) .
7. Replace everything in the text area with your new layout’s HTML code.
8. Click Update preview followed by Save + Close (top right corner).

But i don’t have what is needed in step 6. I don’t have the Use Custom HTML button that is in the top left hand corner.

how do i fix that?
I meant Tumblr**
