Is your username "me"? Are you sure that Apache is turned on? What version of OS X do you have? What browser are you using? Are you a dialup user, or are you connected to a network?

    Oh yes, I'm not on a dial up. My connection is AT&T broadband.

    Thanks for responding.
    My username is not "me". I just used that to state the probblem.
    I don't know if Apache is on. I did hit "start" in the web sharing panel. Was that it?
    I'm using OS 10.1 and browsing with IE 5.1 browser.
    I know absolutely nothing about how to tell if Apache is on.

      Ok. I think I know where this is leading.

      Go to a Terminal, and type "httpd -t". If you see the error message below, then it's a common problem. The URL with more information is also below.

      httpd -t
