Hi all,

Often I wonder how certain sites like gmail manage to compress what the user sees when he does a "view source". How is this achieved? Any pointers to this would be great.

Thanks,
Rajiv

they are not hiding/compressing code....

<frameset rows='100%,*' border=0><frame name=main src=/gmail/html/loading.html frameborder=0 noresize scrolling=no><frame name=js src=/gmail?view=page&name=js&ver=------------ frameborder=0 noresize></frameset>
