if I give you a file with text in it you can read it,

my 404 page (404page.php) has HTML/php in it and I can read
it in wordpad/notepad the php is gone when it is viewed in MSIE or NS

thus if a webpage file has php in it but it is not "rendered"
I can see it... or am I dense?

I really wanted to see how I inserted johnbullas<at>hotmail.com into it.....
and still avoided spambotting
