If you enable Apache on your mac then I don't see any reason why you wouldn't be able to download the Wordpress CMS and run it locally if you wanted to do that. You would also need to install MySQL for the db but with not too much fiddling around you could do this.

Although why you would want to is another matter!

All clear ! Thanks a lot.

I will find there what I need ! Many thanks, DP
