1) Is there a way to keep people from viewing the
source code of HTML files?

2) When using VBScript in HTML files can the actual VB code be placed in another file like you would do with CGI scripts, or does the code actually have to be placed in the HTML file, and if you can put VBScript in another file, how would you call it in the HTML file?

Thank you in advance... I hope you understand what I'm asking, it's hard
to put in words.

1) No, and 2) yes.  You can download for free at the MS web site a program called "Microsoft ActiveX Control Pad" which is an environment for writing VBScript, JScript, and linking them with ActiveX controls.  You can create something called an "HTML Layout".  This is a seperate file (usually with the ".ALX" extention.  Within code, you can call an HTML layout.  This can be done quite easily with the ActiveX Control Pad (which also automatically inserts those tricky ActiveX ID-#'s (You can insert ANY ActiveX control installed with your copy of IE 3).

Once you are finished, it will look something like this:

<OBJECT CLASSID="CLSID:812AE312-8B8E-11CF-93C8-00AA00C08FDF"
ID="mplayer_alx" STYLE="LEFT:0;TOP:0">
<PARAM NAME="ALXPATH" REF VALUE="file:C:\FrontPage Webs\Content\mplayer.alx">
 </OBJECT>

So, basically, the code will be an object inserted into your HTML page.  The only way one could access your ACTUAL code is by downloading and viewing the actual ALX file, making your code much more secure.
