There is also "links" and "lynx". I checked that all platforms have w3m.
As a backup plan, I can
add a macro to select one of the 3 in the unlikely event w3m is not
available and someone
has no other way of building docbook in text format.

This is a nice way of turning off w3m for those who have it but do not
wish to use it.
We had a few complaints about w3m being used under the cover by xmlto.

In any case, the work will be done by the macro and not in everyone of
our modules.
