Help me figure out how to back up iWeb files.

Does anyone have any ideas on how to save iWeb page content on another computer?

I have one central website that I created using iWeb. The main site also links to another website that I created using iWeb. I also use the Apple server, MobileMe, to run the sites.
I've been through the Mac forums many times, and I know by now that there is no straightforward way to copy and/or manage iWeb webpages with more than one computer. What I'd like to know is if anyone has found a way around this problem? Have you miraculously found a way to backup iWeb files, or even just copy the bulk of the content to minimize the time it will take to reconstruct the websites once a computer switch is necessary?

You just want to move the files to another Mac running iWeb? The data is all stored in a database file, located at /Users/YourUserName/Library/Application Support/iWeb/

You can just move this file to another Mac running iWeb and it will open fine.

I keep the iWeb file in DropBox and can access it from any computer that I've set up to use that dropbox account. But the site I'm managing like this is rather small so the file size limits at dropbox aren't a problem for me.

Haha, so simple. These both worked. Thanks!
