view-source URI scheme is used by some browsers to construct URLs that refer to a source display for a given resource. 
For example, this
URI would show the source of the page located at http://www.example.com view-source:http://www.example.com
On 25 May 2011 the 'view-source' URI scheme was officially registered with IANA
per  RFC 4395.
