How hard would it be to pipe a message to links/lynx? I believe slrn has a function for stripping html.

% In case we need metamail to display an article:
set metamail_command "lynx -dump -force-html %s"

Stripping it's not the same as formatting it, so IMO it's better
to farm the work out to a web app.  links does a good job of
rendering html tables, and more, into ascii...
