Chapter 2. Working With Web Page Files > Viewing Your Page in a Browser

Viewing Your Page in a Browser

Once you’ve created a page, you’ll want to see what it looks like in a browser. In fact, since you don’t know which browser your visitors will be using, it’s a good idea to look at the page in several browsers.

To look at your page in a browser

Open a browser.

Choose File > Open, Open File, or Open Page (just not Open Location), depending on the browser (Figure 2.21).

Figure 2.21. From the desired browser (this is Netscape for Windows), choose File > Open Page. In Explorer for Windows, it’s called File > Open. In Explorer for Mac, it’s File > Open File.

In the dialog box that appears, either type the location of the page on your hard disk, or click Browse (IE) or Choose File (Netscape) to find it (Figure 2.22).

Figure 2.22. On Windows machines, you’ll get an intermediary box asking if you want to type the path in by hand. If you don’t (!), click the Choose File button (in IE, it’s Browse). You’ll get the dialog box shown in Figure 2.23.

If you’ve clicked Browse or Choose File in step 3, in the new dialog box that appears, navigate to the folder on your hard disk that contains the desired Web page and click Open (Figure 2.23).

Figure 2.23. Choose the file that you want to open and click the Open button.

Back in the Open Page dialog box, click Open. The page is displayed in the browser just as it will appear when you actually publish it on the server (see page 405).
