UTF8 HTML to UTF8 Text

rstaveley asked
Last Modified: 2012-06-27
I have a template system that generates UTF8 HTML, and I want to generate multipart/alternative e-mails with it. I've handled the issue of inline CSS in the HTML, it is the text part that I'm trying to get right. What I'd like is to be able to take my UTF8 HTML and generate UTF8 text from it.

http://search.cpan.org/~gaas/HTML-Format-1.23/lib/HTML/FormatText.pm looks like a good way to convert HTML e-mail to text, but it is limited to Latin1. I wonder what the best approach would be for handling UTF8?
