Hi Van,

even if this has never been a feature of webtest, your mail wasn't spam.

This is a feature of WebTest to save the responses as received from the
server. All kind of manipulation (like changing href or src attributes,
adding a base tag, ...) would bring the question when looking at some page
afterwards: is this part of source generated by my application or by
WebTest?

Nevertheless it's a common whisch to really see the page (without styles and
images the reponses don't really look like the "real" ones). It's possible
that WebTest includes one day a small WebApp to display the captured results
with the ability to hold additional resources (like stylesheets or images)
from the real web application (acting for them like a proxy). This would
allow both to see the captured responses with "real" look and to avoid
having to alter them. If you want to start coding this... ;-)

Marc.
