Source code is just the html code on your page. To view it, you can open one of your html files with notepad or something.

Chances are, if you don't know what source code is, you won't know how to clean it up.

What html editor are you using?

Hmm ok. Dreamweaver is probably the best editor to use. It's pretty straightforward to use too.

Are you able to view the source code now?

Hi Jeff,

In response to your question, while viewing your page on the internet, if you are using firefox or IE, click VIEW (at the top) then SOURCE (or Page Source) and you will see what I am talking about.

There are lots of posts on this forum about web authoring software -- the good, the bad, the perplexing. The most popular (around here) are Dreamweaver and XSitePro. Dreamweaver has a 30 day trial version so you can give it a test drive.

If your site is already built and just needs some tidying, however, you're probably better off doing some quick, basic (free) HTML lessons on the web (there are heaps) and learning what some tags mean. Opening and editing your site in another application is probably just going to complicate it even more.

Regards,
Mark
