While browsing a web page you can go to the menu bar > view > source and a window pops up and shows you the html code for that particular page.
Is there a way to stop this from happening?  What code will have to be be included in your html to hide the code from viewers.
Thank you.

You cannot really hide HTML code because the browser has to see it to know what is shown.  You can disable right click but there are ways around it.  Usually, people new to web design do this but after 6-12 months, they realize there is no point.
