window will split into 2. The left side shows the folders and pages
that are on the Local Web Site.
Local Web Site = The folders and pages on your pc.
window on the right shows the folders and pages on the Remote Web
Remote Web Site = The folders and pages on the web
Under the local and remote windows, there are some links. You can

web folder by clicking on Local to Remote then clicking on Publish
can download the folders and pages from the web site onto your pc by
clicking on Remote to Local and clicking Publish Web Site
can synchronize the folders that are on the web site with the
folders on your pc.
tend not to use any of the above options as I prefer to click each
folder or page individually and publish by clicking on the arrow

reason there's a question mark next to the index.htm on the Local
side and the index.html on the Remote side is because the 2 pages
are different. the reason for this is that we haven't published yet
so the index.html on the remote side will be blank.
Click on index.htm on the local side and click on the arrow to
publish the page to the web site.
the same with any other pages and folders you have.
You'll notice that when you publish your index.htm, it won't
overwrite the index.html on the remote side. this is because the
file names are slightly different. Yours is called index.htm and on
the remote side it's called index.html.
We're going to delete the index.html on the remote side. Click on
the page to select it and click on the scissors to delete it.
will get this warning box.
Don't worry about the warning. Whatever page you call index.htm will
become the home page for your web site so you can safely delete the
one that's already there ;)
that's it....your home page for your web site should now be able to
be seen on the web :o)
