We're guessing you will simply have to auther it so nobody can see the
code!

Actually, the answer is "there is no way to do that."

Ya know, there's really only one surefire way to avoid someone from stealing
your source HTML code:

1. Select all files.
2. Hit "delete".

All other attempts to "conceal" the code are anywhere from easy to hard to
work around, and those determined to get your exact HTML code lines won't be
stopped by something as trivial as encrypted HTML or other JavaScripting
methods.

Of course it all depends on who you want to conceal it from and for how
long.

The most effective methods are to have it engraved on a piece of
radioactive waste and then buried under several feet of concrete, saving
the code onto a CD and secretly concealing the CD in the casing of a
communications satellite that is about to be launched, or best of all
simply save it onto a floppy disc and swallow it.

Most of us use a much simpler method. If we want to conceal it we just
don't upload it to the web, of course the majority of us don't ever mark
up a web page unless we specifically intent it to be seen, however I
gather than one regular here has been experimenting unsuccessfully with
uploading the page and then going to visit anyone who attempts to view it
and exploding their computer using napalm.

The possibilities are endless.

The desire to conceal HTML is inversely proportional to the value
(or even interest) of that HTML.

An author of a Web page can conceal the code only from those who know
less than he does; this may not be good enough for your purposes.

Deleting the page is not as effective as never having offered it.

Rule 1 of concealing HTML source:

Those who wish to conceal their HTML invariably do not have HTML that is
worth concealing.

Usually, beginning a .html file with 60 newlines will stop most people --
they don't usually think to scroll down. However, what you want is
security through non-obscurity, which is even worse than security through
obscurity (which is the type of security that all passwords use).

You can't.


Well, you can try. Some people have gone to a lot of effort to
implement and market a whole system to do so [1], but even that isn't
fool proof, and causes far more problems than it's worth.
