Hello WebmasterWorld,
I've noticed this a lot and I have numerious computers I work on including ones running 98SE, and XP. When I view source in IE it does not always view the source. Because IE calls up the text editor notepad it wont go and I dont know why. A memory issue? Has anyone else experienced this?

I've noticed this occasionally, and it usually just requires shutting down the browser and re-opening it.

I don't know why it happens.

Hey EliteWeb -- Erase your "Temporary Internet Files" cache under Tools, Internet Options. Once cleared, you can "View Source" again.

Thanks sun818 for the tip, do you have any clue why it happens though on a technical level. Like did i view the source once before and now it doesnt want to? :)
