Works fine here (via mozilla with no popups obviously). I went to it
this morning with IE and it popped up a notepad window. Its easy to
reproduce - just put an image in a piece of html with the src url of
"view-source:file:///path/to/some/local/file" and then open this html
file in IE.

Works for me (IE6). Apparently works in an HTML email as well.
