interesting.  what on eartch could this have to do with emacs-w3m's
behaviour?  i mean, _why_ does this work?

i think you're right, and i said this in my first report of this
bug.  the other (german) site i reported did expose the same problem
with seemingly correct HTML.

on the contrary.  again i ask:  why does your workaround work?  to me
it shouldn't :)  ah!  on second thought, could it have to do with
table handling?  but then emacs-w3m and stand-alone w3m should behave
the same!
