This cache talks about two techniques that can be used on a cache page to hide a puzzle, its hints, or even the solution itself.
Words on the cache page can be written in different colors. If they are written in white they will blend into the page background and seem invisible. There are two easy ways to check for white writing:
(1) Press CTRL-A (hold down the CTRL key and press the A key) to highlight the entire page.
(2) Use your computer mouse to hightlight sections of the page by holding down the left button while dragging the cursor over the part you want to highlight.
You can try both techniques in the box below:
Well done! You found part of the north coordinates: N 45 29. The rest of the north
coordinate numbers are in the sentence below:
White font can be used to add numbers or words anywhere in the cache description, often7between3sentences or8words.
To me, looking at a cache page's source code is like looking under a car's hood. You can see the nuts and bolts of the page's HTML (HyperText Markup Language). HTML is a collection of text and codes used to control the appearance of information on a web page. A cache owner can hide things in the source code that won't appear on the cache page.
If you use a PC, an easy way to look at the source code is to press CTRL-U (that is, hold down the CTRL key and press the U key.) Another way is to right-click on the page and choose from the menu that pops up. Different browsers have different menus.
Here's how to do it with Safari on an iMac (Thank you, wearn3!):
Here's a website that shows other ways to check the source code using different computers and different browsers (I found it by doing an internet search for "how find source code"): How to Read Your Website Source Code and Why It’s Important
Now, on a geocache page, you need to find the UserSuppliedContent. You can do this by opening a Find box on the page (press the F3 function key [thank you, trailtrekn!], or CTRL-F), and typing in users. (You don't need to type in all the letters of usersuppliedcontent, and you don't need to worry about capitalization.)
Now you try it. Search this cache page's source code to see what additional info you might find hidden therein.
As I said, this is one of a series of "How Do I Solve..." caches. They are spread out in different neighborhoods. It might help to solve them in order, but you don't need to. I tried to make these easy to understand, but if you have any questions about them, please ask.
Here are all the caches in the series. They are also posted in a "How Do I Solve These #@&%$ Puzzle Caches?!!" bookmark list.
This series of #@&%$ Puzzles contains the following caches:
Have fun solving puzzle caches! And remember ...
