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 http://www.queness.com/post/77/simple-jquery-modal-window-tutorial#login

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?
