I often use:
	lynx -dump xxxxx.html

It's very useful for extracting text from HTML files, or for extracting a
list of links:

lynx -dump /usr/httpd/htdocs/LFS-BOOK-INTEL-3.0-PRE1-HTML/ch03-packages.html |
	 tr "] " "\n\n" |
	 grep ftp://.*bz2 |
	 while read f
		 do wget $f

This downloaded all the packages listed in the LFS book.
