Restricting HTML source code access for an internal, IE-only web site

here's the lowdown

Im about to roll out an ASP-based Intranet for my school.  Some of the kids here are quite savvy, so Id like to find a way to keep them from *easily* reading the HTML source code of the pages they see.  We're all using IE7, so there are no Mozilla needs.  

I know all about how you can't prevent HTML source code from being read, but do the same rules apply for an internal site where all users are on IE7 and I have control over their browser settings, account settings, etc?  Is it possible to use a GPO, Active X control, or some other IE-specific feature to prevent users from seeing the HTML source, or am I still subject to the same problems of source-hiding as my extranet couterparts?  

Thanks in advance for any help...

one way is to have the index page one giant div that, through css, references content from a file that is below the web root.

Well, the site is already built so changing the overall layout schema isnt something Id really be willing to take on.  At this point, Id even settle for something simple, like removing all the return breaks so that the HTML is just one big unwrapped line of text.  I doubt my kids would be willing to take the time to parse through it and format it, especially considering the size of the HTML pages...
