View HTML documents on Amiga OS 3.1?

Since i doubt i'll ever put my Amiga on the net, i don't see the need for a webbrowser, but that might very well be the only option in the end.
What i need is a way to read HTML documents that are local, in the way they are meant to be read. As in pages, not as source. Mainly due to the documentation for WHDload being in HTML form, for some reason.
Right now, while i'm running on WinUAE it's not that much of an issue, but i forsee a need to be able to read the documentation in the future as well, after i transfer on to the Amiga.

Any advice on software is appreciated.
B!

Well, a browser is basically a HTML viewer, so what else are you thinking about? I'd just get iBrowse.

My point is that a browser includes a lot more then just a HTML engine. But i'll check iBrowse out.

Their was a HTML datatype, but a browser is likely more accurate for layout.

There is http://aminet.net/package/dev/basic/dark for example, but I'm not sure it'll display those docs correctly (like Mad-Matt already mentioned).

There are two packages I used to use for simple HTML:

http://aminet.net/text/hyper/moreHTML.lha

http://aminet.net/text/show/EvenMore.lha

MoreHTML looks like a tiny fast browser. EvenMore is a very nice proportional text viewer with HTML support. moreHTML comes with source, EvenMore you can add plugins.

Loads of alternatives. I like. I'll go over them and see what dependencies they have. If i can, i'd like to keep it standalone, it's just going to be for a few readme's anyway.

Thank you everyone.

Hi B, I think you should look also for Next on Aminet. It can open html files, ms-word files, amigaguides (even without amigaguide.library), ms-help files, unix man pages, and others (I cited the most useful). It needs only OS 3.0 and dont uses MUI.
