there are tools from which you can build, but the all-perl solutions 
have a certain amount of breakage.  For example, any tables will be 
totally lost -- not just the tableness but the entire content between 
<table> .. </table>.

I have two very well tested perl functions for converting HTML to text, 
one of which is all perl and suffers as above, and the other which uses 
w3m as an external program to do the formatting (which preserves tables 
*and* HREF links as footnotes).  I have not integrated them into RT 
since I haven't had the need.
