    I have a site up and want to use the template I have. Is there a way to modify the template offline, and then look at it in the normal view state without putting it on-line?

    Not really, you'll have to install a either a local copy of wordpress or a development copy, instructions for installing locally are here.

    I highly recommend installing WAMP or if you're lucky MAMP (for mac) so you can work locally. Its really helpful and efficient for rapid development stuff. Jeremy has the link above for them and its the only way to go. I dont know how I would develop themes and plugs without it.

    Think of it this way... at least if you work locally you cant wreck your site when and i do mean WHEN you screw up. ;)
