[Lynx-dev] lynx as a filter

I use an email package such as elm or mutt for most of my email, using
a GUI email reader (e.g., Netscape) only when I must.  Unfortunately,
much of the email I receive is in html format.  The standard utility
for text email readers (e.g., elm),
htmlview, does a very poor job of displaying HTML; lynx does a much
better one.  Is there any way that lynx can replace htmlview as a filter
where an application such as elm pipes the email to the filter and then
the filter displays to the screen and receives keyboard input?  I have
lynx running on all of my platforms.  I have tried to get this to work
but obviously am missing something.
