+<h3 class="section">4.2 Invoking <code>haunt serve</code></h3>
+<p>The <code>haunt serve</code> command allows one to quickly view a local
+preview of the generated website before publishing the finished
+product to a remote web server. When <code>haunt serve</code> runs, a
+local HTTP server is spawned. Visit the server using a web browser to
+inspect the results of the build. By default, the web server listens
+on port 8080, so the URL to visit would be
+<a href="http://localhost:8080">http://localhost:8080</a>.
+<p>While developing, it is common to rebuild the site frequently to view
+the results of incremental changes. Rather than manually running
+<code>haunt build</code> (<a href="Invoking-haunt-build.html#Invoking-haunt-build">Invoking haunt build</a>) each time changes
+are made, the <code>--watch</code> flag can be used to automatically rebuild
+the site when a source file changes on disk.
+<dl compact="compact">

+<dt><code>-p <var>port</var></code></dt>
+<p>Listen for HTTP requests on <var>port</var>.
