When you are in the "View Document Source" window, highlight the info that
you want to save and press <ctrl><c>. you can then paste it wherever you
want by using the edit, paste function from a toolbar or by pressing

The Cut/Copy functions don't work in Netscape's Doc Source window. But,
when in the browser window, just save the file as an .HTM file, and
then you can edit it with any text editor.

A much more elegant solution is to use AOLpress as a browser, download the
page and select Tools/Show HTML, then you can edit and print the source
without having to switch to another software.
