Since a webpage does not specify how it will look like, you'd first have to
decide on a browser. lynx for example can redirect the output into a file,
which you could render as text.

If you used netscape, you should be able to remotely load urls into it and
then do a "screenshot" (say, using xwd) of the window, but that'll give
you only the upper part of the window (ok, you could make the window very
large ;)

A little programming should be required, though.
