That is a very extensive list, thanks a lot! I especially like the konqueror option :-). Do you happen to know a way to view the Debian specific readme's in /usr/share/doc/?

list the available (Debian) readme's available in the  /usr/share/doc

Various ways of reading man pages, documentation
  man pagename
  vim, :Man pagename
  emacs, M-x man
  konqueror, man:pagename
  info pagename
  pinfo pagename
  install dwww, and go to http://localhost/dwww/ in any browser
  install man2html and enter the address
http://localhost/cgi-bin/man/man2html in any web browser.

and finally dont forget google :-)

My favorites so far has been konqueror, dwww YMMV. Please let me know if I
have missed anything...

The description for dwww reads:

Read all on-line documentation with a WWW browser
All installed on-line documentation will be served via a local HTTP
server. When possible, dwww converts the documentation to HTML.
You need to install both a CGI-capable HTTP server and a WWW
browser to read the documentation.

I believe it will do what you want.
