Removing text from d/l webpage source

Hi Oleg,

Once I d/l a web page in OE, and view the webpage source using Dreamweaver CS4, I see the text

<!-- saved from url=(1234) -->

just after the code

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C........

Now, if I remove this line (<!-- saved from url=....) and view the page in IE8, I get a warning

'To help protect your security, IE has restricted this webpage from running scripts or ActiveX......'

now if I put the line (<!-- saved from url=....) back in, IE8 does not give this warning.

Question is, how can I remove the line (<!-- saved from url=....) and IE not give me a warning?

I am assuming OE is adding the line (<!-- saved from url=....)

Yes, this line was added with the special purpose - to ensure better offline browsing compatibility when viewing pages from the disk.

I assume you made export of the site with the "Add original URL" box checked. This setting adds the line.

Regarding the warning - you should contact Microsoft support about the ActiveX contents warning and how to stop MS Internet Explorer from showing this message.

I unchecked "Add original URL" box and have no problem now.

This was a strange problem because the 'original URL' text is a comment in the source and removing it should make no difference to the webpage loading.

Anyway thanks for that.

This is how Internet Explorer is designed. They introduced this comment line format in IE 6.0 version, as I remember. Lots of security restrictions were added.
