Default View Source in Simulator

Please Login to Remove!

Using the Blackberry device simulator and the MDS simulator, I am able to view my webapp served of my local server. I want to view the HTML source sent to (recieved by?) the simulator. Basically, I want to verify that the source is in deed what I have intended specific for Blackberry browsing.

Any recommendations on how to go about this? I've searched the forums, and found a few similar topics, but no definite recommendations.

Thanks.

Perhaps open it in a web-browser and view the source? or have your application sysout it?

More simply, couldn't you just change the content of the BlackBerry-specific HTML so you'd be able to see from the BlackBerry Browser straight away?

Change the content to see the change. Yes.

What about changes to the actual HTML? Not really.

Example, I add some meta tags or hidden input fields with prepopulated values, how would I verify it's been added correctly without being about to view the source?

Smartsniff allows me to see the source easily. Too bad a view source is not built into the Simulator, that would simplify things for content developers.
