    I would like to know how you can open a web page in plain text format (not HTML) so that no active content will run without me allowing, I dont want to open all my web pages like this but only some, the ones I know that have active content. Maybe a keyboard shortcut?

    In IE options, set the option either off or ask, and then put your "allowed" sites in Trusted Sites.

    Ok, since you didn't seem to like that option.

    Do a similar thing, except place your "plain text" sites in Restricted Sites and for that area, disable active content.
