Wait a minute. In Sylpheed, html messages can be viewed with an
external browser. (Right click > Open...)

An "Open" option is not available.  And I can't find any such
option in any of the menus either.

Click the 'attachment list view' button that appears in every message
containing html.  I'll show it here, it's at the right red arrow:
Then right-click the html part (left red arrow) to 'Open' or 'Open

Okay, found it.

I have mine set to google chrome '%s'.  I also tried chrome '%s'.
No joy.    Of course, I'm configuring as I learn how to use
Sylpheed.  So, that could be part of the problem.

Check whether you can open chrome + url from the command line like
this: $ chrome www.google.com
If this works, then  chrome '%s'  should work with the 'Open' menu
option mentioned above.

google-chrome '%s' works.  Don't forget the hyphen.

I just wish it could open in Sylpheed's reader window itself, instead
of me having to switch to a different workspace where google-chrome is
running all the time.  Would Thunderbird or similar do that?  I've
never used it, so I don't know.

That's one of the main reasons I switched from Sylpheed to Thunderbird. It's handling of html is built-in. A second reason was I found Sylpheed's IMAP-handling a little flakey. YMMV.
