    What about other ways of looking at the source?
    Like CTRL+U in Mozilla/Firefox?
    Or, directly activating the menu item for "View Souce"?
    Is there any way of preventing that too?

    Hmm...thinking about this, you could make a web page which is a VNC client to a very limited VNC X server. This X server simply has the text displayed in black-and-white, obscured by something like the "TeeVee" screensaver on steroids. The snow level is increased so that any individual screenshot would not be OCR-able, and a certain amount of jitteryness could prevent a simple algorithmic averaging of screenshots to filter out the snow.

    With this sort of method, the quickest method for copying the text could be to simply type it into a text editor manually.

    Bearing in mind that reading this sort of web page would be stupendously annoying...

    Well, how about a simpler possibility of exporting the text into PDF with copying disabled?
    I guess, there is a property of PDF that disables copying of text...
    I don't know how to set it using ghostscript/ps2pdf or "html2ps | ps2pdf" kind of setups.
    Maybe, looking at the documentation of ghostscript would help?

    I didn't see any option like that in the ghostscript man page.

    Another thaught

    Hi all,
    I have some application, which is using some file, but if in between user deletes that backend file then application can start giving error.
    How can i prevent user from deleting/cutting/renaming/blocking of usage by other applications that file.
    Due to some issues i cannot change the premission of particular file.
    In linux is there any command that can lock/unlock the file? So when application is using the file then, that file is locked for other applications??
    Please help me out
    Thanks in advance
