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 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. :)
