view source of an email which I am composing in WLM?

Outlook Express had a tab to go from "normal" to "view source" of an email which I am composing. That tab is gone in Windows Live Mail. Is there any way to get into the source?

You are thinking of Properties/Details/Message Source which applies to sent or received messages. Send the email first and then look in your sent items folder to find the version with a "Properties" right-click option.

Guess I wasn't clear enough; I mean the html in the new message which I am COMPOSING and have NOT sent yet. I sometimes want to "tweak" the html. I do NOT mean the source in the sense where it came from etc etc.

I don't remember that feature, but you could send it to yourself and then look at the properties of the sent mail. I often send mail to myself just to see how an email I'm sending will look when received.
