    You'd think it would sync with Mobileme...I guess that particular cloud doesn't rain.

    For iWeb, copy over the following file:

    ~/Library/Application Support/iWeb/Domain

    Transfer your iWeb site from one Comp. to another

    From your post, I see you aree running Leopard so I will assume you are running iLife 08.

    To move iWeb pages from one computer to another, move the Domain.sites2 file where iWeb stores its files. To find that file go to User/Library/Application Support/iWeb/Domain.sites2. To transfer your domain.sites2 file from one mac to the other you can put it on a USB-Stick, on a CD/DVD, or if it is small enough, even on MobilMe!

    It is critical that you change permissions of the Domain file to be able to edit, save changes and publish a website from another computer.

    Select the Domain file press Command+i under Ownership & Permissions go to =>Details =>Everyone (or Others) and select Read & Write. You have to do this in the original user account and computer in which the Domain file was created.

    If you don’t change permissions you will find an error while publishing and saving.

    Everything I wrote above I got directly from the best iWeb Help site available. -- http://iwebfaq.org/site/iWeb_Transfer_Site.html
