Tool to copy web text plus URL--in one go?

There must be a tool for this: I want to copy text from a web page, then paste into in a word processing document, with the URL of the original page somehow appended to the text--say, in parenthesis at the end. Any suggestions?

Tabs, pseudo-columns, and wrapping lines

Name. Tab. Phone number. This creates two columns. One for name and one for phone number, except--when someone has a really long name that goes past the tab setting and impinges on the phone number area. Is there some sort of tab setting that will make that long name wrap around, creating a second line within its own name area? For the record, I know I could use a table to do exactly this, but I'm reformatting a huge amount of text that is already laid out with tabs. Any advice for this poor sap who accepted the job? The text is in an InDesign document, but I can copy it to a word processor or anything that would do the trick. Thanks!
