I don't use iWeb either, but dollars to doughnuts it stores its 
passwords in the system-wide login keychain. You can retrieve 
those through the Keychain Access utility (Applications -> 
Utilities -> Keychain Access). 2Click the correct entry, tick 
the "Show Password" checkbox, authenticate using the main login 
password and you'll be golden.
