Publishing to the Web

After you’ve fixed your Web pages and marked which ones should be published, you should preview them in several Web browsers. Use Internet Explorer and Netscape Navigator (in several versions of each) to check each page’s appearance and links, since each browser interprets HTML code a bit differently. Make a point of also checking your pages on a Macintosh, particularly since PC-created images can look a bit washed out on Mac-driven monitors, which run a tad brighter than PC-driven monitors. Depending on how the pages look and behave, you may need to readjust some of your pages to avoid cross-platform problems. For details on which Web technologies work with various browsers, see Setting Web Browser Compatibility.

Once you’ve fixed any problems found in the browsers, you’re finally ready to copy your Web site files from your local hard drive to the Web server you’ll be using. Before you start, you’ll need to know the server address that you’ll be copying your files to, plus a user name and password to gain access to the server. Check with the Web server’s administrator if you need help.
