I found https://github.com/jaytaylor/html2text#example-usage recently.
It's intended use is for accompany one's text/html email part with a
text/plain equivalent, but it could be the basis of rendering a received
text/html better than lynx(1), links(1), w3m(1), ...

It pulls in others' work for tables, etc.  Might be nice to see
supported.  text/sgr anyone?  :-)  less(1) has -R.

Cheers, Ralph.
