Hello all,

Yes, I do run Debian stable (sarge) for that very reason.  However, from memory, I think there wasn't a w3 package on the debian stable list;     a posting from Tim a few months ago reported that w3 had again become usable after a recent change in the debian testing w3 package, so it seemed reasonable to use that one. 

Again, you may be interested in the non-computer-professional point of view:  debian stable is indeed stable, in that once a change is made to the system, it stays.  However, it is a regular occurrence that installing a new package is not straightfoward and requires some tracking down of problems.  I enjoy the attempt, but am not always successful.  

I find the eyes-free access to the whole system, plus its stability, compelling reasons for using Linux and emacspeak,  as opposed to anythiing else, despite the extra time and learning involved.
