One thing to remeber about the way Mozilla does "view source".
when you ask Mozilla to "view source" it wil pop up a new window and
then do a new GET request on that page. This can really screw you on a
page with posted data from a form submission. This differs from IE and
Netscape 4.x series. IE will actually show you the source of what you
have downloaded, Netscape will give you a useless (imho) message saying 
that "this page has posted data and cannot be viewed yadda yadda yadda"
while Mozilla will just send a brand new request to the webserver, 
losing all the preciuos variables you typed and selected in the previous 
page's form.

I love the 2001 08 26 mozilla nightly build btw.
