The low-end technique for doing this is, e.g.,

groff -man -Tascii /usr/man/man1/ls.1

though groff's definition of "ASCII" may not agree 100% with yours.  In
particular, you might want "tr -d '\008'" in a pipeline to get rid of
all these ^H characters that are used to create boldface in -Tascii

Hey, if gnome-man2html works well enough, you could really even

gnome-man2html foo.3 > foo.html && lynx -dump foo.html && rm -f foo.html
