There are three options to save the HTML from the "save as..." menu
item in MSIE 5. I used the default one. My MSIE is in Swedish, so I'm 
not sure about the English terms. The default one is in retranslation 
from Swedish "Entire web page". That one was mangled. Now I've tried the
other two as well: "Web Archive" seems to mangle the code similarily
but even worse (oh, mama!), while the third one, "web page, HTML only"
actually works (no tampering with the code). And then, as Sergey Ushakov
pointed out, the best way is of course to "View source" and save that.
That's what I use.

However, the option to save "entire web page" is very useful for other
purposes, since it automatically saves all images and other resources too 
- very convenient at times.
