bugs in emacspeak w3m form code



Yvonn --- emacspeak-w3m has been broken for a while, and whenever I've
tried it w3m for emacs appears to be consistently broken -- even when
building from their CVS repostiroy --- so I've given up on it for a
while now.

If those of you here who use it actively and find it useful want to
contribute patches to emacspeak-w3m I'll integrate them in --- but I
myself dont plan to maintain or update that module in the near future
future.
