I'm getting frustrated -- when I want to copy code from a webpage to my text editor, I often have to spend a lot of time reformatting it because the page author did not embed line terminators

e.g. copying from one of the sections (e.g. htmt or css or script) at

What is the easiest way to copy such text to a text editor so that the html is converted and formatted the way it appears on the web page?
