Tonight I compiled and installed both w3m and html2text as part
of our production environment. I ran each of them (as well as
lynx) againt the HOWTO-INDEX to produce ASCII output from
the same HTML file.
The results can be viewed at - http://metalab.unc.edu/gferg/txt/
Personally, I still like the lynx output best, although w3m
does better with line spacing. Note that the HOWTO-INDEX does
not contain any tables.
lmk what works best for everyone.
