b. Sites that deliver raw data

NOTE: Some data sets on the web are already in Excel's XLS format.
Some are nicely organised in tables, and so will copy and paste directly into Excel
Others will paste annoyingly into a single column in Excel. For these, and with the data still selected,
use the "Data" => "Text to Columns" option => "Delimited" => "Space" usually does it, then 'Fi'nish'.
