Re: [Paul] How to hide source code???? In reply to
I have seen this trick used on various sites before:

http://www.unmelted.com/hide-source-code.html

It completely baffled me. They haven't just hit the return key loads of times. If you hit view->source it should show you the code for the parent of the page, and have the code for the other frames.

eg. If you are on a site and you press view-> source, you will get the source code for index.html or whatever the index happens to be. Then in theory, if the site uses frames, you will get <frame src=..., but, this site just showed <!-- (c) whatever.net, all rights reserved --!>

They removed the protection from their site so I haven't had a chance to get a closer look, at the time, I didn't really think to look any closer, but they definitely didn't use the "new line" trick. I believe I accidently came across the same thing on a tree-view links script. It could have been something like http://www.treeview.net, but i remember there being a file called blank.html, and whatever contents was placed in there showed up when you tried to view the source on the links frame, it is definitely some sort of javascript trick. They also seem to have removed the protection Frown Will have to see if I can find an old version of the script somewhere.
