Publishing a Site with iWeb

Publishing a site refers to the process of generating the actual Web pages, associated code, and image files that make up your site. All these files do not actually exist in a viewable form until you publish the site. If you have a .Mac membership, publishing also includes copying all the files that make up your site to your iDisk. iWeb will let you know what pages have been published by displaying them in blue in the Site Navigation pane while unpublished pages are displayed in red.

Publishing a site and saving a site are different processes. Saving a site (selecting Save from the File menu or use the Apple-S key combination) saves the changes in iWeb and should be done periodically in case iWeb crashes or some other issue happens while you are working. Saving a site takes only a few seconds and can be done whether you are connected to the Internet or not.
