Basic answer : no.

This one of those subjects on which enormous amounts of bandwidth and 
ink have been spent already, and the answer is basically, definitely, 
and still : NO.

If you are really a newbie and want to avoid spending many useless hours 
in your future career on that subject, just remember this : anything you 
put on a website and make acessible in any way through a URL (even a 
relative one) is accessible by anyone, with a browser or with any HTTP 
client program, self-written or not, and can be downloaded, saved, 
copied, modified, perverted, and re-used. Nothing in an HTML page is 
hidden, once you save the page to disk.

And it has to be, otherwise how would the browser get it ?
