I have parsed an entire page and written it to the output (.wrt) file, but it appears as rendered HTML instead of the source code, why?

I have parsed an entire page and written it to the output (.wrt) file, but it appears as rendered HTML instead of the source code, why?

Since SilkPerformer 5.1 an enhancement was made to output files to enable them to display rendered HTML pages.  This enables the user to see exactly what the parsed page would be displayed as in a browser and is useful for debugging purposes.

If you wish to see the source code only then you can put the following line of code before the writeln statement that you use to write out the entire html page :-

Writeln("PLAINTEXT");

This will instruct Silk Performer to display the html page as plain text, thus showing you the source code rather than the rendered HTML.
