I'm not entirely sure what you're looking for, but you might be interested 
in the "Show Selection Source" feature of the latest versions of Mozilla 
(it's in 1.2.1 for sure).

This allows you to highlight part of a web page and show the HTML for just 
that part.

Either way, such discussion is off-topic here. Maybe you should try the 
newsgroup comp.infosystems.www.browsers.misc
