The content provided currently at the website includes HTML
beatufication (such as colours) which raises questions on the fidelity
of the file.

I think the easiest alternative is to use "svn export":
1. If you want to grab
   you need to convert this to
2. Then type

$ svn export svn://
A    gtk-2.0.m4
Export complete.
$ _

and you are done.

If this is really useful, it might be good to create an "svnget"
script that autoconverts/grabs the URL.
