    I cannot for the life of me find where the html file is that iWeb is apparently saving to. I have searched the web and everyone says it is in application support. But there isn't even an iWeb folder in there.

    I have the most up to date version. Does anyone know where I can find it?

    Sorted it!! Found where to post it to a folder. iWeb is a poorly laid out editor.

    Is iWeb going to discontinued along with Mobile Me? I believe the websites cease next year.

    iWeb is, the websites will remain saved to the computer I believe. As long as you save a copy of the site to your drive, it should remain?

    The iWeb program will continue to work on all existing Macs with 10.6 and 10.7. All published websites will continue to be viewable as long as they are NOT hosted by MobileME. You need to use a dedicated private hosting provider (publish your iWeb site to a local folder then upload it using FTP to your hosting provider).

    Any recommendation on private hosting providers?

    Here's one source:

    http://www.webhostingreviews.com/

    There are a lot of them out there. Just explore carefully what you get and don't get, and how flexible they are.

    For example, I was using dot5hosting for a while, but when I wanted to add a few email accounts I discovered that the users weren't allowed to change their own email passwords from the ones I assigned initially. This might have changed by now, but it was a killer for the account-holders.

    I've been completely satisfied with 1and1.com (5 or 6 years there, about 10 sites), but I'm sure there are others equally good.

    edit: 1and1 gets horrible reviews. What can I say? I have had no problems at all there.
