First of all, I assume that your intentions are pure and you are just studying the
HTML and not planning on using illegally in terms of copyright! :-)

You could do the following:

1. View the source as usual.
2. Drag to highlight the portion of HTML you wish to copy.
3. Use your keyboard shortcut to Copy (in Windows, this is Control-C).
4. Open up a text editor (in Windows, try Notepad accessory).
5. Use the Paste command (either the application's Paste command or the keyboard
shortcut -- in Windows this is Control-V).
