Apologies if this is the wrong site to be asking this, but I just downloaded a template for a website that I want to customise. On my Mac I have a program called Espresso which allows me to 'preview' any website that contains any mix of client-side and server-side files. Is there an equivalent on the PC?

I essentially just want to preview my website offline.

You should install any program - for example MAMP - that allows you to use Apache and MySql. Then go to wordpress.org and download the latest copy of wordpress. Install it and upload your theme in the wp-content/themes folder.
