Does anybody know of such a tool that will run on my Macintosh? Or, if
I misunderstood the use of a "personal web server," but you know of
another way to accomplish what I need to do, I'd appreciate hearing
that, too!

I'm not sure of your usage, there. I know of "personal web servers" and I
know about the site management technique you mention, but they don't

A personal web server is a web server that runs on your desktop system, I
thought. Mac equivalents would be NetPresenz or MacHTTP.

It's always a good idea to have a copy of your site that you work on, rather
than working on the production site. It saves you the embarassment of having
someone hit the site and fall off the edge of a link that you haven't
tested, yet.

There are some site management tools for Macs, SiteMill from Adobe coming to
mind first. GNNPress is another; it's been renamed to AOLPress (how many of
you knew AOL owned GNN?) and it's free: Reviews of
the older versions say it's usable, but a trifle slow.

Dave Winer at has some interesting website
management tools. One automates the process of ftp-ing the page to the web
server. They all run on Macs, and Macs only, at least for the moment. He and
MS are trying to figure out how to get them to run on Windows as well.

If JCI had an opinion on this, they'd hire someone else to deliver it.
