Well, on most "standard" servers (ie, servers which serve the documents
off of the file system), what is served is what is on the file system
at the time of the request. If you are editing the document in your
favorite editor, the modifications will not be served until you save
the document back to disk. (temporary copies on the filesystem if so
used by your editor not withstanding, but generally the /tmp directory
is not in the document tree)
