Hey Wm, Nothing prevents you from running a webserver on your local host (unless of course you're on a corporate network where it's generally pooh-poohed by the AoH (Admins on High). Lots of developers run local webservers to check their work.
And, since localhost refers to 127.0.0.1 or the local loopback address, http://localhost is a perfectly valid URL if one is running a webserver and trying to connect to that webserver from the same machine it's running on. :) Glenn On 10:52 AM 8/28/2002 -0700, Wm wrote: >shouldn't that just be /localhost/ rather than http://....?
