Re: w3



Hello, 

Ok I've made some progress. W3 is compiled and installed on my
system. I had a look at the emacs wiki which Rob suggested. 

I now have this in .emacs:

;html tidy/emacspeak stuff
(add-hook 'w3-parse-hooks 'w3-tidy-page)

 (defvar w3-fast-parse-tidy-program "/usr/local/bin/tidy")
  (defun w3-tidy-page (&optional buff)
    "Use html tidy to clean up the HTML in the current buffer."
    (save-excursion
        (if buff
            (set-buffer buff)
          (setq buff (current-buffer)))
        (widen)
        (call-process-region (point-min) (point-max)
                             w3-fast-parse-tidy-program
                             t (list buff nil) nil ;nil nil nil;
                             "--show-warnings" "no" "--show-errors" "0" "--force-output" "yes"
                             "-quiet" "-clean" "-bare" "-omit"
                             "--drop-proprietary-attributes" "yes" "--hide-comments" "yes"
                           )))
I type m-x w3-fetch
It prompts me for the url, I enter www.google.com
It looks to download the page fine, but I can't read the page. There
  seems to be no w3 buffer as such for google. It says w3 mode down the
  bottom, but I'm left in the scratch buffer. I try c-x b to switch
  buffer, but I don't see any other buffers apart from the usual
  *messages* etc. 

Here is output from *messages* buffer after running w3-fetch

I do have html tidy installed in /usr/local/bin. 

So what am I doing wrong? I'm just trying to get this working so I can
navigate html tables in local html files I have.

Thanks for any help! 

Cheers,
Dan
