    Is the code in a HTML web page proprietary?

    Can you copyright the code in a web page?
    Can any one use that code?

    The thing with HTML is that it's so ubiquitous that someone could come up with the exact same thing you have without even realizing, making copyright rather defunct. Once you get into more advanced languages like PHP and JavaScript whose libraries and functions tend to server a specific purpose, then copyright is generally applicable. However, if someone steals your, say, design, which you have a definite copyright over because it's unique, then...same thing for copy.
