iWeb, with reservations
Authored by: arloguthrie on Jan 10, '06 01:30:20PM

Only if iWeb supports FTP or WebDAV publishing and customizeable templates. If it requires .Mac, then I really have no use for it. Anyone know?

It requires .Mac. Now, whether it's hackable or not, who knows -- I don't know if the .Mac servers are providing any services, for instance, when you publish your pages.

It says right on the iWeb info page that .Mac is not required, but suggested. Straight from the site:

*iWeb publishing requires Internet and webserver access (.Mac recommended)

I think Apple is downplaying this fact to get more .Mac subscribers.

Thx; I hadn't seen that page when I tested ... and strangely, when I asked an Apple rep in the booth, I got the ".Mac required" answer!

Thanks for clarifying;

After some hands-on experimentation with iWeb at the Expo, I found that it either publishes to .Mac or exports HTML (and related files) to a directory. From there one could publish the contents but as of yet it does not support FTP or WebDAV.

I was impressed with the quality of the HTML output. It creates a nice hierarchy of folders with all the content contained in a single parent directory. Unfortunately, the HTML was not indented or saved with whitespace (but mercifully there were line breaks).

Michael.

I'd love to see if the HTML output is compliant with current web standards. Is a DOCTYPE declared? If so, is the code valid? E.g., does it pass a validation test as offered at the w3.org site? (http://validator.w3.org/)

Jim.

The code seems to be Transitional XHTML, but it's far from semantic. Read Todd Dominey's analysis.
