I occasionally receive html messages and I would like to see whether text has been formatted or colored by the sender. I can simply navigate to the attachment list and open the text/html MIME type attachment with a web browser; however, for the sake of simplicity, I would prefer for the html to be rendered as formatted text within the pager. To do this, I have enabled html rendering by
w3m with the following line in my
Additionally, I have added to my config file lines such as the following to highlight text that the sender may have designated as important:
color bold brightred default.
I expect that any text that was formatted as bold by the sender will appear as
brightred in the pager. However, this formatting is not actually applied. Instead, I see only plaintext preceded by the statement:
[-- Autoview using /usr/bin/w3m -I 'ISO-8859-1' -dump -T text/html ''/tmp/mutt.html'' --].
What am I doing wrong? How do I enable display of html-formatted messages within pager?
