"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

I'm assuming that you mean that you don't want users visting your page to be able to view your souce code? If that's the case then there isn't any way to stop it. Inherently for the web to work your html has to be transmitted to the browser, meaning you have to give the browsing computer all of your code.

If you're really concerned with people ripping off your code and using it to make their own stuff then HTML isn't the answer. You might want to look into some other web technologies like Flash, which (among also offering really great multimedai control), creates a file which can't be edited on the user's end (when you save as a flash movie or .swf file).
