Binary package “html2text” in ubuntu lucid
advanced HTML to text converter
html2text is a converter from HTML to plain text.
html2text reads HTML documents supplied in the command line (or from standard
input), converts each of them into a stream of plain text characters and
writes output to the file or the terminal.
Debian version also can recognize encoding of documents, do on-fly
input and output recoding.
html2text was written because the author wasn't happy with the
output of "lynx -dump" and so he wrote something better.
