there's a entire web browser written in elisp, bundled with xemacs,
called w3. You invoke it with M-x w3. This is back in 1999. I haven't
used xemacs for many years but am guessing xemacs still bundle it

the w3 browser support not just text rendering like lynx, but also
images, html tables, and one of css or javascript i forgot which. It
about maybe 10 times slower than a dedicated web browser though.

this is about the only web browser in elisp i think.

but if you just interested in reading web pages in emacs, there's a
elisp interface to a external text-based browser called w3m. see
