Printing HTML Source

I've been trying to print an HTML file as plain text, but my lpr command
insists on converting it as an HTML document and prints only some boxes labeled
"[IMAGE]" (for the <IMG> tags) and the text output within the <BODY> tags. Of
course I want the HTML source to be printed instead, but even if I save the
file as whatever.txt, lpr still sees the HTML within and attempts to convert
it. The best way in which I've been able to print the file as plain text is by
mangling or removing the opening <BODY>, as <ODY> or some such kludge.

So, how can I get lpr to ignore those tags and behave itself? I'm running SuSE
7.1 with a Cannon S450.

Thanks again,
