question regarding show-if macro

Hi all,

we are playing around with the Visibilty plugin, especially the "show-if" macro. On first sight it works as it should, the content is only shown to the specific user. But it seems that this can be easily be shown by clicking on "View source" or "View storage format". This shows the content to everybody regardless of the permission. Is there a better way to use the macro? Right now we just use it within the page. We are running Confluence 4.3.2 and Visibility Plugin 2.0.3.

Thanks for any input,

What we've done is have the content that is restricted on a different page and use the include macro that's surrounded by the show-if macro. That way if they view the source or advanced confluence search they will only see "include page: blaa blaa".
