    View source not always working (IE 6)

    The page below is delivered via a PHP script. When I try View->Source on IE,
    nothing happens, however Firefox displays the source OK. I have noticed a
    similar thing with pages produced by the Mambo CMS system except that
    sometimes IS's View->Source works on a page and other times it will not.

    Any ideas why this happens?

    <html>
    <head>
    <title>Login</title>
    </head>
    <body>
    <font color="red">*
    </font>
    <h1>Login</h1>
    <form action="/bb/login.php" method="post">
    <table align="center" border="1" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="3">
    <tr><td>Username:</td><td>
    <input type="text" name="uname" maxlength="40" value="">
    </td></tr>
    <tr><td>Password:</td><td>
    <input type="password" name="passwd" maxlength="50">
    </td></tr>
    <tr><td colspan="2" align="right">
    <input type="submit" name="submit" value="Login">
    </td></tr>
    </table>
    </form>
    </body>
    </html>

    Re: View source not always working (IE 6)

    Does the CMS send "no-cache" or other headers that might instruct IE to try to re-retrieve the source by re-downloading the page? (And, if so, does re-downloading the page "out-of-context" fail?)
