Val,

The first thing that came to my mind was that you might have exceeded some
quota established by your web page server. Whether is be a size limitation
(megabyte limit) or an upload quota.

The second thing that came to mind is that you have two different versions -
old and new. Perhaps if you were to delete all files from your web site first
before adding the new, it might work. There may be name conflicts - one file
having the same name not being allowed to overwrite an existing file - or
something like that. Only do this if you have the fully constructed web site
on your Mac.

You might also try uploading one file at a time. If that works then, there may
be a problem with the way that the whole web site is being uploaded. Perhaps
there's a problem with one of the files. I'm not familiar with Macs anymore
but if you can, try checking the validity of the files.

If uploading one file works, try uploading a few files at a time.

Bill
