When you use emacs-w3m with w3mmee, emacs-w3m decodes with coding-system
which is decided by w3mmee.

In your example:

| % w3mmee -dump=extra http://proquest.safaribooksonline.com/0130935387
| W3M-Current-URL: http://proquest.safaribooksonline.com/?XmlId=0-13-093538-7
| W3M-Document-Charset: shift_jis
So, emacs-w3m treats the page encoded with shift_jis, and some characters
are displayed as kanjis.

w3mmee can change candidates of coding-system for autodetection.
How about following setting.

(setq w3m-dump-head-source-command-arguments
      '("-dump=extra,head,source" "-o" "mylang=iso"))
