About 15years ago back when WebTV was popular ( I know it was never "popular") the webtv had tools to be able to put the URL of a site in a data box, and it would convert it and show you exactly how the site was put together from the from the first <html><body> to the </body></html>

Is there still web tools that can do this for you?

:( at work so not allowed to use anything but IE


Plus I have to be able to use the link, because I can't access the sites from work due to the firewall, thats why I need to see the source to put it on an HTML site editor to see the content.

You are not seeing the real "source" of the pages when you do a "view source", just the code that's displaying in your browser. Therefor, when they have a firewall preventing access to the site, doing "view source" will either give the source of the error page denying access, or just won't work.

U have to be inside of the page in order to see the code in that form, I'm talking about URL's that I can't access because our Firewall is blocking it, I have the actual URL's just can't get into the site, simple sites like www.mmo-champion.com since it is a gaming site, from work I can't get into it, but if I can get the source code, I can just put it on a HTML building site, and view the contents of it.



P.S. other link wasn't malicious, ran a check on it.

There are reasons your IT Dept has sites blocked. It is called productivity. Or lack of.

This appears you are attempting to circumvent security measures put in place on a computer with in a network that is not yours.

Correct ?

Ah. I misunderstood. How are you going to get the source code if the site is blocked? We do not help circumvent security measures since many of us here make a living preventing people from doing just what you propose.

EDIT: sicne this is not a web development question, I am moving this to the general discussion section.
