    Is this a website you control?

    If so, you can use PHP (or another server-side scripting language) to create a CSV of your data on the fly.

    If not, I have no clue other than to select the range you wish to copy, copy that range, and then paste it into Excel manually.

    It's usually a good idea to start out with this at the VERY TOP of your CSS: * {border:0;margin:0;padding:0;}
