view html? Do you mean only see the code? Like <html></html> or to actually surf the web with the console?

If you want to see the html code of a page, any text editor as vim, emacs or pico will do. If you actually want a command line based browser, look after lynx or links. They both can do that.

Good luck!

Links (or Links2). Links2 I believe even has COLOR! It should be in any good Debian package repository

Either links or lynx, tho they format differently, will display html in a fashion - text only.

vi or jed or pico for editting...
