nothing! How did they do that?

They can't, could be your PC temp files ...

Could be that the page was built by javascript alone...was it a popup
or a page that you opened from another page?

A page? Its a lot easier to tell you how somebody did something if you
provide the URL to the page.

However, the answer is almost certainly that: They didn't.

Internet Explorer has a bug in which View Source doesn't work when the
browser cache is full. That is most likely that you have run into.

No, you didn't find a page like that. You found a page where you didn't
know how to view the source, that's all. It is still there.

What is the sense in that? Every page has a source, also those in popups and
those built by javascript. As others said, when the cache is full, IE does
not have enough memory to reveal the source, although it is still there.
Sometimes F5 is enough to get the functionality back, other times the temp
files must be cleaned up to make room.

I can't imagine someone who doesn't know how to View Source. That makes no
sense at all. I just overlooked the cache situation. It's been a long day.

However, switching off IE's menu>view>sourc e can be done!
