Re: emacspeak and w3



Hi Rob,

Wow, your style sheet and settings do appear to have fixed the issue. This has
me stumped - I was obviously missing something and would swear I had tried
those exact settings before. I must have not been refreshing something or had
something wrong with my stylesheet or something else enabled or more likely, a
bit of all of the above. I cannot tell you how many frustrating hours I spent
trying to get this sorted!.

Now I've applied some of the stuff from Raman's w3-prepare file, I also find
that the epub stuff is working great! This is just fantastic as I find the
rendering of html pages from epub files much better than the old conversion of
text from PDF files. It also means that perhaps on the weekend, I might be able
to get epub and w3m working as now I have an idea what I'm aiming at and can
make sure whatever I do doesn't break existing stuff. 

The really nice thing is that since machines have gotten so much faster in the
past few years, the slower rendering time of w3 compared to w3m is pretty much
unnoticeable except on really large html files. 

thanks again, you have made my day!

Tim

touch of genius (and a lot of courage) to move in the opposite direction.
