Thank you.  I've CVS committed the following description to the
FAQ section of the Info document:

   * Q. Why does not emacs-w3m work with w3mmee?

     If you are using w3mmee configured with the option `lang=en' or
     `lang=ja', reconfigure w3mmee with the option `lang=many' (it can
     be done by entering 3, when the `configure' script prompts you,
     "Which language do you prefer?"), and rebuild w3mmee.

I appreciate adding such a thing (please touch it up if my
English looks funny :).  However, I think it is better to
contain w3m rather than w3mmee in the Linux distribution.
I don't make light of w3mmee, though.

Hm, I couldn't reproduce the problem using emacs-w3m with both
w3m and w3mmee.  I will be cautious of it from now on.  Since
google.com often redirects a request to the Japanese google site,
although it may be only in Japan.

Yes, it can be performed by the w3m-toggle-inline-images command
which is bound to the T key (or the I key), or set t to the
w3m-default-display-inline-images variable.
