Is Someone Stealing Your Source Code? by Michael Southon

That's a question that worries many people onrepparttar Internet. And some people go to great lengths to hide their source code.

There are several reasons you might want to concealrepparttar 131820 source code of your web pages:

=> you have web pages that rank highly inrepparttar 131821 search engines and you don't want people to see your meta tags

=> you don't want people copying your web page design or java scripts

=> you want to protect your website from email harvesters and other spam utilities

But can you hide your source code?

The short answer is no - to display a web page,repparttar 131822 browser has to be able to readrepparttar 131823 source, and ifrepparttar 131824 browser can read it, so can your visitors.

But there are ways to make it more difficult for your visitors to read your source code. Here are some of them:

(1) Adding dozens of carriage returns atrepparttar 131825 top of your HTML page

This one has fooled me a couple of times. All you see is a lot of blank space - but just keep scrolling down and you'll findrepparttar 131826 source code.

(2) Using frames

When you try to viewrepparttar 131827 source code of a page using this technique, all you see isrepparttar 131828 first ten or fifteen lines of HTML. But just saverepparttar 131829 page to a folder on your hard disk and then look for a sub-folder whererepparttar 131830 images in that page were saved to.
