I'm new to web design and I will be publishing my first website soon I hope. I have a couple of random questions. If someone can answer them for me thanks.

1. Is there anywhere you can do a test site with SEO testing, in other words i have a site with multiple linked pages and it's all set to be published, yet I don't want to buy a domain name yet or host it yet, but I do want to know how it would work and look on different OS's and screen res's. I know i can test it on a browser via a couple of programs like dreamweaver but is there anywhere that I can test out SEO without publishing a site.

2. Can google now recognize Flash for SEO, I read somewhere that it is getting better at it.

3. Any comments and inspiration about creating your first website would be great to hear.
