| Sorry, amigo. You are out of luck. This cannot be done, not in a way that
| will work for all browsers. You could write/modify a browser yourself if you
| want this to work for some kind of kiosk mode. If you just want to keep
| people from seeing the HTML that you are serving to the web at large, you
| can't do it.

Microsoft's Windows 95 Web Browser does not allow you to see the
source.  I find it extremely annoying.  One of the reasons the
WWW became so popular is this ability to ``share'' information,
ideas, and techniques.  If it was just a marketing tool, it would
never have gone this far.
