i think there are programs to convert HTML to TXT but I don't recall which / haven't tried them – barlop May 20 '11 at 11:08

Copy the HTML from your browser and paste it into Notepad. It will tab-delimited so the columns won't always appear lined up but you can use a more feature-rich text editor such as SciTE or NotePad++ to adjust the tab widths and (optionally) convert the tabs to spaces.

Alternatively, you could use a text-based browser like Lynx and avoid the tab issue.

or use a WYSIWYG Html editor such as Sharepoint designer,Kompozer or Frontpage.
