Are you using FrontPage or a another Program or BlueVoda? Links should work when you preview them unless....

if your site is called.... www.mysite.com and your links point to say www.mysite.com/page1.html then the links will not work until you uploaded the site But....

Lets say you have an index page and then a folder with all your other pages in it.

The links on those other pages can read ....

../index.html

and it will work when you preview and it will work when you upload. the thing to be careful of is that ../ actually means 'go out of the folder I am in so....

../index.html means go out of the folder that I am in (the current page) and find index.html

If the pages you are linking to are all in the same folder then your links can simply say the name of the page and it will work in a preview and when the site is online.. For example, just make your links say

about.html
contact.html
index.html

Forget about the www part :)
