what is URL command that displays source instead of page?

There's some command I forgot that you can type into the
address field of a web browser that will cause it to
display the source code for that page instead of
the page itself. Can anyone tell me what it is?
It's something like:

viewsource:http://mysite.com
or
view:http://mysite.com
or
source:http://mysite.com

except I don't quite have it correct.

Try
view-source:http://www.example.com/
but there is no standard as far as I know that browsers need to support
view-source as a pseudo protocol.
And of course most browsers have a menu item to view the source
