I havent tried because I'm fairly pleased with gnus SHR html renderer.

If one would like to try it heres an idea:
- create a new xwidget webkit to gnus inline renderer (no idea how to
interface to gnus like this)
- make gnus produce an xwdiget display spec inline in the mail buffer
- this display spec should accept a string containing the html, or
something like that. currently I only support urls, so atm one would
need to extract the html to a file

Seems doable, and xwidgets should eventually support it. Sounds a bit
scary though to allow webkit to render spam. I dont understand the
security implications well enough yet.
