8Create a professional looking website, that lives to the standards of W3C in it’s CSS and XHTML, in a very short time, than edit and play with it for a week and when finished (or almost), upload it to a host and control it with a c-panel (login in to the site from within the site and changing whatever you want in minutes as administrator)
9View your site’s progress, open another browser window and put the address: http://localhost/joomla, where you can see your newly created site. when you change something in the control panel, check how it looks like in the website’s page by refreshing the page.
