It's the final step you mention below at which things always choke when 
I try to follow such instructions about creating a palette:

After generating a palette from the selection, I have an open notebook 
with an Untitled-... on its title bar.  But I cannot save it: Save As 
does not open the expected dialog box where I designate the place and 
name under which to save the notebook.
