Convert Html Email to Plain Text

Hi all,

I have en email compose page where i have included a rich text editor.
So when the user composes the email it contains html tags.

I saw standard email clients and gmail, etc. They convert every html email content to Plain text email as well,
and attach it as a body part. So there is a text/plain and also text/html part in the mail. Thus when we receive the mail it shows the part (text/plain or text/html) depending on which format the user wants to see it in.

I am guessing the email clients parse through the html email, strip html tags and convert <br> <p> to line breaks, etc.

I wanted to know if there are any standard libraries in Java or something else perhaps which could do this html email to plain text email
conversion for me. Or do i have to write that code for myself.

I tried, but could not find any java libraries that do this. Need help !!

Thanks guys...
