In many cases, of course, what is "published" on the web is not the original source code ("files") at all. Most sites these days are generated with server-side code, often with data from a database. Even non-HTML/CSS files may be generated, such as images, sound or PDF files. Server-side caching aside, the result does not become "files" until it is downloaded by the visitor's browser - and what one visitor gets may be quite different from what another gets.

Clients may think it is easy to copy - but often that will be far from true.
