alternatively, to prevent the html from being shown, simply
provide no way of showing it -- comment out all "mhshow-show-text/html:"
lines in mh_profile (_and_ the system mh_profile, i believe).

since sometimes there's nothing _but_ an html section (grrr...),
you then need a way of viewing them only sometimes.  i use a
script that does:
    MHSHOW=$HOME/Mail/mhn.html mhshow -type text/html $*

the mhn.html file referred to by $MHSHOW contains the single line:
    mhshow-show-text/html: %p/usr/bin/lynx -force_html '%F' -dump | less

(but see earl's comments regarding lynx -- i should change this.)
