FWIW, nedmail and friends on Plan9 punt in text/html by piping the part through 
htmlfmt(1).  This turns things into a reasonable text representation, absent 
javascript and obtuse use of frames and tables.  It works surprisingly well for 
most of the HTML-only content I get stuck with.

I don't see why this wouldn't work for nmh.  The overhead is light – no more so 
than invoking less(1).
