>How do you all test your pages before putting them on the server?

Create a folder that has everything the web page is supposed to have.
All the html's, all the graphics, all the etc. Then, just name that folder
"test" and use whatever web browser to open the html files. Don't forget
that browsers can open regular everyday files--you don't actually have to
surf outside to go anyplace.

When everything within that test folder behaves like it should, then
copy the entire folder over to the server, rename the folder as
appropriate, and you're good to go. :)

The thing I would focus on is not recreating the directory structure of
some other machine but building your own structure on the Mac and
transferring the whole thing over to the UNIX machine in one big package.
If UNIX has some file folder naming restrictions different than the Mac
(one of which I heard of was that UNIX is either case sensitive to the nth
degree or only accepts lower case all the time) then just create those
UNIX-safe names on the Mac.
Hopefully you should be able to create freely on the Mac, then copy and
forget to the UNIX machine. :)
