Hi Joel,

I know nothing about iWeb, but I would assume the only thing you'll find
out from it would the the remote address and username for connecting via
S/FTP; as most likely the password will not be readable.

The easiest way would be to get the info from the hosting provider they
use. Maybe they even have the hosting welcome email with all the info
for ready you!

Just a thought.
