I am looking around for any tools to convert html to plain text in a platform independent way. I also need support for UTF-8 encoding as well as a well formatted output of nested tables. What is the best way to do this ? Is XSL FO recommended for this ? I looked around for XSL for converting HTML to FO, but I did not find any. 
The tools I found on web are mostly windows based. The remaining are not very good at converting nested tables in HTML to a properly rendered plain text format.
