There is a more safe way to get the original HTML code from the browser:
1) menu View -> Source in MSIE or
2) right-click on the document area and then select "View Source"

In case of multiframe document the latter method allows getting the source
for every frame.

IMHO you get the original HTML code this way with MSIE.

Netscape seems to expand inline JavaScript.

HTH.
