It is unfortunate that files lacking newlines behave so poorly in  
TextMate. Vim also behaves poorly with files lacking newlines so we  
are in good company :)

Matt's right, just bring up Terminal and type "man tidy" to get a  
sense of what cleanups can be done prior to opening these compacted  
files in TextMate. You can also do the same thing through a GUI in  
OmniWeb's View Source window.
