    Source Code Not Visible with Microsoft.XMLHTTP

    If I use this function this way and the page displays properly, shouldn't that mean that the source code should also be listed. When I use the code the page displays the page, but when I try to view source code it is empty.

        Private Function ReturnHTML(sURL)
            Dim objXMLHTTP,HTML
            Set objXMLHTTP = Server.CreateObject("Microsoft.XMLHTTP")
            objXMLHTTP.Open "GET", sURL, False
            ReturnHTML = objXMLHTTP.responseText
        End Function
        Response.Write ReturnHTML(Request.Form("inpURL"))

    no, what you are doing is writing dynamically to the page via JavaScript, the source will not be visible. Only what exists beforehand will be visible.
