another strange but silent error

could you please visit:

http://wh58-508.st.uni-magdeburg.de/sparemint/ html/packages/fwhois.html

this URI retruns quickly, but emacs-w3m return code is just 0
(zero).  i have noticed this behaviour with pages beeing inaccessible
when the server returns 404 etc.  wouldn't it be much more
informative if emacs-w3m returned just this HTTP exception code for
the users information?  then we might just refer new users to the
appropriate HTTP specifications so they can look these codes up,
whereas "senior" surfers would know immediately what went wrong!
