The problem isn't the Mac part, it's iWeb. I've taken over a couple of  
sites created in iWeb. In short, my advice is "start over". The whole  
point of iWeb is that any bozo can put together a pretty site without  
knowing anything. The iWeb sites I've seen are hopeless quagmires with  
thousands of lines of Javascript, obscenely complicated CSS, and file  
structures designed by Kafka. They're opaque to the search engines and  
insanely labor intensive to maintain. I repeat, start over!
