Problems with view-source: on 302 redirect

Not the same old problems though

I am trying to view the source of a 302 redirect to my site.

I have tried view-source:http://www...... but I just get "The page you are looking for is currently unavailable"

This is on IE6 and also on IE5 & Safari on the Mac.

On the PC I can View >> Source from the menu and I've cleared out caches and checked the registry.

What am I doing wrong?

There's no "source" to a 302 redirect. It's a command issued by the server to the browser in HTTP headers. After the browser receives that command, it does the redirect and stops listening for further content.

Duh! Of course ... wadda dope.

Still can't get the view-source: in the address bar to work for regular URLs though.

Why would it work in the menu but not in the address bar? - on all 3 browsers over 2 machines (PC & Mac)?
