    Um...you mean View Source? I'm no connoisseur of browsers, but I'd expect all browsers to have that capability. IE 6 does.
    If I did your homework for you, then you might pass your class without learning how to write a program like this. Then you might graduate and get your degree without learning how to write a program like this. You might become a professional programmer without knowing how to write a program like this. Someday you might work on a project with me without knowing how to write a program like this. Then I would have to do you serious bodily harm. - Jack Klein

    Right click -> View Source

    You do not need a plugin or anything. This functionality is built into all browsers.

    You cannot view PHP code in the browser, that is stored on the server and is not downloaded with the rest of the source.

    View-> Source in IE or Opera. Or, you could save the page to your disk and open it with a text editor.

    Can you give an example of a page that does that Sang-drax? Also which browser. I have had it happen when the page was blank (literally blank)

    if it's a blank page it wouldn't show anything - it's like opening an empty .txt file... or a new thing I'm seeing is that people but a bunch of empty space at the top of their page so when people view the source they think they're seeing an empty document, when all the data is really way below the part they're looking at.

    there are also ways that people can block your left-click, but they usually throw you an alert when they do so, and then going through the menu also works some time.

    another way you can do it without actually executing the HTML (but the server will still know who requested it) is to open notepad, go to open a file, change files of type to all files, and then type in the full URL of the page you're trying to open in the section labeled file name.

    this last way doesn't always work (for examle, if the requested page uses frames and blocks browsers not supporting frames).

    again, this doesn't show the PHP, because only the server sees that - it never releases it to the public. AFAIK, there's no way to see the PHP code through an HTTP connection. you'd need to connect via FTP or something else.

    Wouldn't that create a scroll bar in notepad when you view the page? So when you scroll down you will see the content, right?
    When no one helps you out. Call google();

    yeah, but when you do it in a browser, you're used to seeing the vertical scroll bar because most pages you visit are longer than a screen's length, so you hardly notice it when you view the source through the browser.
