The best way is if you can run a local web server and serve up the content
similarly to how it'd be served in production.  A common web development tactic
is to run up a simple server and visit http://localhost/ or
http://localhost:8000/ or similar, having it serve the site "normally" from

If you have a Linux system available you could store the content on there,
and if everything is basic static content then you can serve a site trivially

cd /path/to/website/base
python -m SimpleHTTPServer

it'll tell you what port it's on, and you can visit http://linuxbox:someport/

If you're stuck developing the site on RiscOS, then consider using a RAM disc
or similar because then your site would be a $ on the FS.
