You can't. At least not that I am aware of.

Every browser has the ability to see source code (HTML) but not server side code (PHP CF)

As some people's advice is, if you do not want people to see it, do not publish it on the web, obviously that holds true, but it is just stupid.

Are you that worried that your work will be copied? I would think that a large portion of the web is plagerized (sp?) so I wouldn't worry too much about it.

Also it's a good learning tool for newbies, they look at a site and wonder how they can do that, and if they steal your code then so be it.

Now if you are hiding your HTML/source because of pictures or SWF files, I am sure there are ways around "hiding" it or making sure users can't steal it. But if someone wants it bad enough, they will find a way.

You can encrypt your code, but anyone who knows about such things would have little difficulty decrypting it. It would only stop people who had a casual interest in it. There is very little copywriteable or special about HTML coding. If you're trying to stop people from linking directly to your files encrypting may not be a bad idea.

Fleming,

Thanks for the reply. I am not so concern about my code, I was just curious about how to achieve such a trick. I came accross some websites which forbid you to see their code. I also noticed that the trick works with IE but not always with Firefox...
So I just wanted to understand how to do it as I could not understand how to hide something that the browser needs to read in order to "create" a webpage ?...
I guess they use encryption.

Thanks again

ssone,

I would effectively be interested in protecting pictures or swf files although I am fully aware that once broadcasted on the web no data can be totaly protected.
Thank you for the offer !

Thanks for the reply, if it's so easy to decrypt then there is no need ot buy such programs... But your point is interesting, I did not think about the problem of people linking directly to my files !
Thanks again.
