Blinking source code?

Is this some kind of "don't copy us" protection?

I just tried to view the source for subjex.com's front page to see how they were handling their scrolling news window...

...and when I found the code that handles that part of their page, all the text for that section of the page in the source code window was bright sky-blue and BLINKING!

Why would this happen? Is it some kind of code-protecto thing, assuming nobody could hit copy quick enough to catch it while visible? How in the heck does that work?

You are using NS - right?

The Netscape tech/types did that little trick to show you incorrect code.
I have used it to my advantage in the source code of the site in my profile.

LOL *show* incorrect code? Sheesh... they should have just highlighted it in red. The only thing they're doing there is hiding incorrect code.

BTW, the code to the site in your profile showed up fine...?

I feel like I've missed something I really should know. How can you copy code from View/Source in Netscape?

to copy source code in NS

Then control+A to select all
then controll+c to copy

Highlight the text with your mouse, and hit ctrl-C? I know highlighting and command-C works for Mac...

[side note: I do not condone stealing site code for any reason... I generally copy code snippets from sites I've designed, when I can't remember exactly how I did something.]

TOTLAY Agreed!
"I can't remember exactly"

Like when you need the title and description of a site that you are submitting..

Duh -- of course that works! I'm not a big one for keyboard shortcuts, as you can tell.

Since there is no top menu, and the right mouseclick doesn't work, I've always just assumed ...

Thanks for helping a newbie ;)
