You can install Apache on your computer. That is how I work in my sites
without having to upload often to view them. There is another way but it
requires a little extra work on your part. Create a copy of you template
but instead of using includes directives use the actual code. Make sure
the nav, header or whatever html code is exactly like the code in the
include files. Name it something like working_demo or live_demo.

Work in that file, say in the nav or header, and view the changes on
your local computer. When you have finalized the changes, copy and paste
the code from the demo file nav, header or whatever into the appropriate
nclude file. This will require that you have two copies of your includes
and that you keep them both up to date so as not to cause confusion.
