My first suggestion is to get Firefox, which has a built-in source viewer instead of using an external application.

Anyways..

1) if you have a shortcut to Notepad anywhere (not just on your desktop) delete it
2) empty your cache (Tools->Internet Options->General->Delete Files)

If these do not work, I found a lot of other opinions when I went to:

good luck ;)

I'm hoping this ins't to far off the subject. When I try to view source in Firefox 1.0 from my web site I only get this info:
<html>
<head>
<title>title</title>


</head>
<frameset rows="100%,*" border="0">
<frame src="http://xx.xx.xx.102:999" frameborder="0">
<frame frameborder="0" noresize>
</frameset>
</html>



but if I view source in IE 6 I see all the source code? I cleared the Firefox cache. Also it says frameset but I'm only using xhtml and css .
Any thoughts?

Thanks

Right click, select something along the lines of "This Frame" and then "View Frame Source".

if you cannot view source try entering this in the address bar:
Code:
javascript:alert(document.getElementsByTagName("html")[0].outerHTML);

Just a suggestion for anyone who follows the ideas here and still can't view the source of a webpage, you could always try to enter the URL in an app that can grab and display the source code for you, like http://appincredible.com/online/view-source/
