First things first before i ask this...i don't want any replies like every other forum i have browsed through i don't want people saying 'Why would you want to do that' 'you cant do that, or you shouldn't need to do that' basically i want to do it, im sure it can be done, if you can help please do :) other wise don't flame me :P

thanks guys...

Okay, basically i want to find a way to make it less easy for visitors to see my source code, whether i make it so they cant right click, or the source code is completely hidden or even encrypted.

can any one help on this matter, and no i have nothing really of importance on my website that needs hiding i just want to be able to do it. oh and i don't want to pay for software ;)

thank you in advance,

    Fine. We won't give you the standard lecture that anything that's placed on the web is accessible, all you can do is increase the effort, etc.

    good answer (I'm serious!)!
    And also good you didn't point to sites that explain to him the principal grounds why it can't be done since he's "sure it can be done". Therefore, sites which pretend they could do it will be much more his liking.

    Exactly. I also didn't mention how easy it is to find decrypters on the web - so if he uses one of those products, it's possible for someone else to decrypt the results in seconds. It was clear he didn't have any interest in that information.
