I think you wants to go the other direction, gopher => WWW.  I only
know a site-specific options, like the gopherpedia site and NOAA weather
forcasts.  I suppose news feeds are another example.  Maybe a decade or
so ago I recall seeing several government sites that offered 'text-only'
versions of thier sites, usually via some sort of proxy.  Since so much
of today's web is dynamically generated it would be pretty tough to
make a comprehensive gopher-to-www proxy.  A simple 'lynx -dump' would
let you browse many sites but anything with a menu or script-generated
content would be unavailable.
