iWeb is going bye bye when MobileMe shuts down later this month. When MobileMe shuts down, that will be the end of MobileMe iWeb hosting. TRUE. However, iWeb sites that are hosted elsewhere (like Olypen, for example) should not be affected ... and will continue to be editable using iWeb. Since swit...
