    I’ve found Textise to be buggy, however ViewText works almost all of the time. It can be found at viewtext.org, and they supply a wonderful bookmarklet on the front page, which is able to turn whatever page you’re looking at into a very cleaned-up, text-only view (including images that are not advertisements and are part of the actual page). It even preserves some of the header sizing! The only downside is that if an article is more than one page, it does not show the link(s) to the “next” page(s). Perhaps they’ll figure that part out, and then it’ll be PERFECT.
