You can put a caret ^ character at the end of the line to continue it. 


However, be sure there are no space characters or any other whitespace 
following the ^ character. 
Try:

ruby -ropen-uri -e "url='http://hoho.dyndns.org/~holger/smalltalk.html'" ^
-e "puts open(url).read.gsub(/Smalltalk/,'Ruby')" > foo.html ^
&& start foo.html && ruby -e "sleep 3" && del foo.html
