You can't hide it, they most likely have a bunch of blank lines at the top, try scrolling down a little.

no, the source screen doesn't even pop up (nothing happens when you go up to 'view' then 'source'. i went to another site just to make sure i was clicking on the right things and the other sites i could have the source screen pop up.

they may have used js to disable the context menu button on the mouse but there are other ways to get the source code displayed.

the only reason why i was curious (at looking at the source code) was that a person had said they just redesigned the site and i was curious if he just redesigned the site...or if he also did some SEO (not that they are a competitor to our business in our area...but they are in the same business).
anybody feel it's really necessary to 'hide' the source code? can i ask what it takes to display the source of this site?

Save the page and all related files: JS, CSS, etc.

About to say the same thing. Once it is YOUR browser you can pretty much do whatever (view it, etc) if you save it.

Open the url in an editor.

Could be the whole page was masked by a frame.

you could use something like the Web Developer plugin for firefox which includes several tools to view and validate html and css source.
or use command line tools [webmasterworld.com] such as wget, curl or lwp-request to obtain web files.
