A friend of mine has created a site and has decided to run something on her page that will not allow me to see her code. It is driving me nuts and I'm not sure what it is, but I want to know if there is any way around it. I can't View Source, open with Frontpage, or even with Notpad. Any suggestions?

The link is Here (http://the-afterlife.net/)

Thanks for any suggestions.

LOL!
This old chesnut again :o

1. Go to Mozilla.org (http://www.mozilla.org/download.html)
and download one of their fantastic, free browsers.

2. Right click on your friends page, select View Page Source.

3. Laugh at your friend for thinking IE is the only browser on the planet.

*edit: while laughing at your friend, make sure to tell her that her site isn't a web page by any stretch of the imagination. It doesn't contain a <html>, <head> or <body> tag on a single page!!! Let alone other important elements such as a doctype.

These are essential elements and I'm surprised the site even displays.

Well looking at the source of that site, I wouldn't want to look at it again. I've seen my 2 year old write html better than that :(

(That I have to ask tells you something about the quality of it...)

Maybe that's a valid reason for hiding your code, you wouldn't want the public to see it because you'd be embarassed.
