Cyclosaurus has the answer.

the 2 images that didn’t load have file name begin and end with space, you need to get rid of space characters from file name along with any special characters.

Bonjour

Redirect code:

<script type="text/javascript">
var url ='../../pagename.html';
var delay = 4;
var d = delay * 1000;window.setTimeout ('parent.location.replace(url)', d);
</script>

Replace ../../pagename.html by the path or the URL of your page,
and change thenumber of sec. (4 is the number of sec. here).

Apple – Support – Discussions – Publish Error ….  Turns out that he just needed to follow step #2, delete the iWeb preference file.  Still this is good troubleshooting if that doesn’t fix it.  Thanks Old Toad.

1 – close iWeb.
2 – delete the iWeb preference file, com.apple.iWeb.plist, that resides in your User/Library/Preferences folder.
3 – go to your User/Library/Caches/com.apple.iWeb folder and delete the contents.
4 – reboot.
5 – launch iWeb and see if there’s any improvement.

If that doesn’t help continue:

6 – move the domain file from your User/Library/Application Support/iWeb folder to the Desktop.
7 – launch iWeb, create a new test site and save.
8 – go to the your User/Library/Application Support/iWeb folder and delete the new domain file.
9 – move your original domain file from the Desktop to the iWeb folder.
10 – launch iWeb and try again.

No, it does not. You can encode your email address as shown in this demo page: 2 ways to encode an email address.

Or you can use a form provider like Wufoo to create an email me link. The email is send to you from their email server and there will be no spider issue. An example of the Wufoo form can be seen at the top of the linked page above.

If that doesn’t help reinstall iWeb from the disk it came on. To do so you’ll have to first delete the current application and all files with “iWeb” in the file name with either a .PKG or .BOM extension that reside in the HD/Library/Receipts folder and from the /var/db/receipts/ folder,
