Re: Problems with W3 and eterm



Bill--
The problem is that this user has not installed W3 and
emacspeak correctly --
see his mention of "emacspeak says you are using an old w3"

emacspeak checks to see if the W3 version that is being used
is current by looking for library w3-speak (part of the W3
distribution)
and that library sets everything up correctly.

I suspect that emacs is still finding an old W3 install even
though the guy thinks he upgraded it.
