Hi there

I'm running Lion 10.7.4, and since the last update my "view source" option in the View menu on Safari has disappeared. Has anyone any idea how I can view the source of a web page.

Thanks very much

What version of Safari are you using?

Evidently you need the developer menu enabled to view the source (why?) which would explain why I saw it and you didn't. To enable it, go to Safari > Preferences > Advanced > Show Develop menu in menu bar.

Thanks so much for your help, I did as you said and I can now view the source.
