Hello...
In NCSA Mosaic there is an option to save the document<HTML> as a text file.
Under the drop down File menu, select "Save as text" and simply name the 
file as you wish.

There are HTM WRITER programs that allow you to save as text. Also you 
can remove the codes from the HTML.
Http://lal.cs.byu.edu/people/nosack/ = HTML Writer by Nosack.

Last but not least you can save the HTML to your system/PC and use a text 
editor to manually remove the codes.
