Can we secure the displayed text/html data in Java so that nobody can copy it?

Java Script provide some measures but if I disable javascript then all has gone

Thanks & best regards

The short answer is no. Think about it... if the data was secure, the browser would not be able to read it to render it. There may be some type of plug-in for a browser that takes an encrypted page and decrypts it for render, and disables the browser's "view source", but I am not aware of any such thing.
