That is about all I can find. I know there is a way to disable right-clicking but I can't find it now.

the only way Ive ever seen it actually done is by scrambling the source with a program called scriptkeeper

If you mean never being able to see it then the answer is that you can't ideas such as disabling the buttons don't work if some one telnets to your site.

Probably the most effective way, although still hackable, is to generate the entire page from javascript which is held in a javascript library file rather than within the html file.

The gist of this would be

<HTML>
<SCRIPT LANGUAGE="javascript" SRC="myjs.js">
</SCRIPT>


Then the js file would contain the document writes to produce the page.

Viewing source will then not show the javascript its self.

No, you cannot hide your HTML code whatever you do.

I have seen people use scripts to disable right click:
Here is one:

<SCRIPT language=javascript>
// No rightclick script
// (c) 1998 barts1000
// barts1000@aol.coma
function click() {
if (event.button==2) {
alert('Put your text over here!')
}
}
document.onmousedown=click
</SCRIPT>

The problem would be I can still view your source code either by from the 'View' menu in IE or by just simply saving the HTML file to my harddisk and viewing it in Notepad.(IE not only saves the HTML page also the graphics embedded to it. :)

You can also retrieve any htmls or images from the browser cache....

So, there is no really a way to hide your HTML code.

Thanks...good luck...

Only IE 5+ saves the images also.
