That is good to know, for the archive if nothing else.

Hmmm.  I think I  remember having a problem when it was in the .emacs
file, but fixing it by moving it to the .emacs-w3m file.

As concerns the hash mark, I have never taken the time to figure out
what it does.  It worked for me so I never questioned it.  I think about
it and wonder what it does about half the time that I see it but I can't
be bothered to look it up.

It will be in the version I am working on for the emacspeak info
manual.  

Thanks again for bringing this to my attention and for testing the
different versions of the solution.
