If you would like to preview your template while you are working on it, or test before uploading you can do this in your web browser. Here are some details:
Dragging pages into your browser:
While you are editing your template pages, you can drag any of the .htm or .html pages right into your web browser to check your work. To do this, for example, open your web browser (Internet Explorer, Netscape, etc...). Now open the folder where your web template files are. Left click on one of the .htm, pages, hold the left button down and drag this page right into your web browser. You can also drag files into Frontpage, Internet Explorer, Netscape and most any other HTML editor.
Editing using View Source:
If you are previewing your template in a web browser you can also edit any HTML page in Internet Explorer (IE) by choosing "view source". Example, drag any .htm page into IE (see above paragraph). In the IE menu, choose "view" then "source". Do your edits and choose "save". NOTE: You can NOT edit pages on-line this way. You can only edit the files in your template folder on your hard drive. If you do an edit and it does not change, you may be trying to edit on-line pages.
