    I have my web page backed up on iDisk, but I can't figure out how to restore it to my local hard drive so that I can continue work on it. Can someone help me out?

    If you mean the published site you can't. That is the output, not the source. It's like taking a baked cake and asking how you get the flour back.

    Short answer: You're stuffed if you didn't do a backup and AFAIK the only way to do that is to "publish" to a folder on your hard drive.

    It is stuff like this that don't get much of a mention when Jobs, Inc. does his RDF at his presentations.
    Loads of sizzle and not a lot of meat. (Mind since he is a vegan, that's not surprising, I guess.)

    It is a massive — let's be nice and call it an oversight on Apple's part.

    You can't.

    iWeb stores your web page in a proprietary file format, when you publish the site, its a one way trip. No way to import your site if you blew away/lost the domain file that iWeb uses.

    Did you try looking restoring it from a backup (you do have backups don't you) Its located in ~/Library/Application Support/iWeb
