convert html to plain text

I can constrain HTML pages to be valid XML. So, the hard part is solved.
But still I don't know of a good solution to covert it to plain text. ...

If tables weren't an issue, I think "lynx -dump file.html" would work for you.
To deal with tables, you could try converting to groff format and using
groff's "tbl" pre-processor to format your tables.
