Yes. I've seen it in the web archive.

Hm. The w3m-history has only <about:> listed. Now I'm in my university
and try to access the university's web server. But I only get "Location:

No. Not at home. Here in my university I need a proxy to access sites
out of the local net. But all pages inside the intra net can also be

I tried this with the correct proxy settings, but then I got

www.google.de could not be found. Please check the name and try again
in my *w3m* buffer.

Me, too. :-(
Just to summarize: It seems to be a network problem, because rendering
local web sites works fine. But it is not a proxy problem. I can access
all external (at the university with proxy / at home without) and
internal sites with w3m in a terminal.
One last thing. C-c C-b sayed that w3m-type was 'w3m-i17n, but I have
w3m installed. Is this correct? I've tested emacs-w3m with (setq
w3m-type 'w3m), but this didn't change anything.
Thanks for your help,
