TinyMCE and default needs to be Source Code

Hello experts:

Is there any way for the textarea to show the Source Code by default when a user enters the page....??  At present it shows the "pretty version".

Below is the code that I am using at present for TinyMCE.

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

<script type="text/javascript">
	theme : "advanced",
	mode : "textareas",
//	plugins : "fullpage",

plugins : "pagebreak,style,layer,table,save,advhr,advimage,advlink,emotions,iespell,inlinepopups,insertdatetime,preview,media,searchreplace,print,contextmenu,paste,directionality,fullscreen,noneditable,visualchars,nonbreaking,xhtmlxtras,template,wordcount,advlist,autosave",
		// Theme options
	theme_advanced_buttons1 : "save,newdocument,|,bold,italic,underline,strikethrough,|,justifyleft,justifycenter,justifyright,justifyfull,|,styleselect,formatselect,fontselect,fontsizeselect",
	theme_advanced_buttons2 : "cut,copy,paste,pastetext,pasteword,|,search,replace,|,bullist,numlist,|,outdent,indent,blockquote,|,undo,redo,|,link,unlink,anchor,image,cleanup,help,code,|,insertdate,inserttime,preview,|,forecolor,backcolor",
	theme_advanced_buttons3 : "tablecontrols,|,hr,removeformat,visualaid,|,sub,sup,|,charmap,emotions,iespell,media,advhr,|,print,|,ltr,rtl,|,fullscreen",
	theme_advanced_buttons4 : "insertlayer,moveforward,movebackward,absolute,|,styleprops,spellchecker,|,cite,abbr,acronym,del,ins,attribs,|,visualchars,nonbreaking,template,blockquote,pagebreak,|,insertfile,insertimage",
	theme_advanced_toolbar_location : "top",
	theme_advanced_toolbar_align : "left",
	theme_advanced_statusbar_location : "bottom",
	theme_advanced_resizing : true

ah, not sure why this appeared within joomla section

Best bet is to use the tinymce website and follow the advice there

You can set the users preference to use no editor and you will always see html only

but i reckon this isnt what your after

Ahhh sorry Storm.  I am not using Joomla.  I am using this with Classic ASP pages.  

Sorry for not mentioning this before.

I figured there might be a setting in the TinyMCE controls that will let me do this.
