Note: not optimized, but it works.

#!/bin/bash curl -s http://www.wrldc.com/ | sed -n '/WR Grid Frequency/,/UI Rate/p' | sed -e 's#<[^>]*>##g' | sed 's/ / /g' | sed 's/UI Rate (Rs\/Unit)/ /g' | sed 's/ //g'

WRGridFrequency 50.07 LastUpdatedat: 31-Jul-201216:25:05

Yes, there are trailing new-lines that I am not sure how to get rid of easily, so letting them be. Suggestions welcome!

You can put this into TextExpander and have the output pasted into current window on-demand.
