That's odd. Did you use the menu item: View-> Page Source (Cmd-U)?
I've never had any trouble with it. In fact it does a certain amount
of source highlighting which you need a special plugin to do in
Safari. I just tried it on this page: http://www.librarything.com/
tag/peak+oil and it seemed to give me the source of the page.

For me it gives exactly the same result as a view->page source.

What does it actually do? I can't work out what's the difference
between page source and generated source?
