Is there a way to work on pages without connecting to the internet?

I'm looking for a way to keep working on parts on my website without having to be connected to the server. I know this can be done (at least I hope so) but just don't know how. Basically, I can't save things if my internet goes down or I'm in my car trying to multi-task. Anyway, I would appreciate any help.

Thanks for your time.

    Hi AllHale,

    When you define the site in DW, set the Local Info to point to a folder on your local computer.

    Set the Remote Info to your ISP settings.

    Now, when you connect to your site, you should have a local pane and a remote pane.  Get all of the file from the remote pane (copy them locally).

    You can now work on your site without being connected to the internet.  You just need to remember to put the files you have changed back to the remote server when you are once again connected to the internet.
