How to See the HTML Code for a Website
View Source in Browser
The steps required to see a website's HTML code are essentially the same for Firefox, Chrome, Safari, Opera and Internet Explorer. Right-click a section of a Web page that contains only text and then select the "View Source" or "View page source" option. Depending on your browser setup, the HTML code opens in a new browser tab or in a separate application window.
Save Source Code to Disk
Built-in Browser Developer Tools
Web Developer Applications
Website design tools like Dreamweaver, Kompozer and Microsoft Expressions enable you to open an online Web page using its URL. You view the HTML code in a source code-only view or a split, preview and source view. In addition, you can edit the code and view the changes in real time. The actual code stored on the website's server is never changed.
