Remove "right click disabled" from web page

Quick hack. Just for the fun of it.

1. Download the web page.
2. Open the html in any text editor. (Notepad/wordpad...)
3. Search for "onmousedown" in the code. This should be
part of some Java script like:

function right(e) {
var msg = "Sorry... Not allowed to copy";
if (navigator.appName == 'Netscape' && e.which == 3) {
alert(msg);
return false;
}
else
if (navigator.appName == 'Microsoft Internet Explorer' &&
event.button==2) {
alert(msg);
return false;
}
return true;
}
document.onmousedown = right;


4. Delete that entire block of code. Save the page.
5. Re-open page in a browser and et-voila... right click works :)
