I tried the following recipe

:0 B fbw 
* ()<HTML>
| lynx -dump -force_html

and it worked perfectly. The only problem I had was that I could not use
my own version of Lynx, it used the one installed in the system and
nothing that I tried worked, but I guess this is not hte right place to
discuss this. In any case if somebody knows, please let me know.
