You can also use an external converter that can convert the HTML to
plain text.  Stripmime (http://www.phred.org/~alex/stripmime.html)
has some code which does this, although not always in the prettiest
way.  DeMIME also does it, and I believe they pipe through lynx for
the conversion, so the results might be nicer.  You can find a link
to DeMIME from the Stripmime webpage.
