Thank you...I am now able to see the "User name already taken" message perfectly. This message is generated via the Javascript on the SignUp.aspx page.

I think my confusion was due to my misunderstanding of how "View Source" works.

Here's how I understand it now....It seems that "View Source" should display the resulting HTML that is sent to the browser by the server after processing the page. It should not show any HTML that is added dynamically by Javascript in the page. In order to view and diagnose the dynamically added HTML, one needs to use IE Developer tools or Firebug.

I've been trying different things with this tool and realizing how powerful it is. I'm even able to debug the client side javascript with it...this is awesome!

Thank you so much again!
