if you haven't already, have a look at w3m [1] or similar. I use mail cap to route emails though w3m and it's pretty rare that I notice anything amiss.

`text/html; w3m -I %{charset} -T text/html; copiousoutput;`

w3m is another project that hasn't seen activity in years. Why do people recommend it so much more often than lynx[1], which is still in active development?

w3m renders HTML tables better. Or at least it used to, when I was setting up my mailcap a long time ago.

For interactive terminal web browsing I prefer links/elinks (again, compared to lynx/w3m a long time ago).
