Last time I spoke to anyone about this I was told this was *hard*,
because there isn't a conventional way you can use XSLT to keep track of
where you on a line.  If you don't know where you are then it's tricky
to do word wrapping. . .

Have you tried "links" (as opposed to "lynx")?  Take a look at something


to get a feel for the output quality.
