I believe we have no need to cope with this report because the
function that is exactly the same as the authors' solution will
be chosen if emacs-w3m runs under the modern XEmacsen that
emacs-w3m currently supports.  (I don't see why the author's
solution can distinguish Australian EST and American EST if a
time string expresses the timezone as just EST.  I guess the
author modified `timezone-world-timezones' so that EST is mapped
to +1000.)

This is not an emacs-w3m problem.  The author should complain to
the Emacs team, if it still happens with the recent Emacs.  I do
not see it with Emacs 22.1, 23.0.50, and 23.0.0, though.

Luca Capello wrote in the reply that the problem seemed to have
gone, though there's no answer from the author.  Anyway I think
it's hard to support any kind of web authentication.  Things I
can do are to have an account in a site and to make emacs-w3m
work with it one by one.  In other words, it is no wonder that
emacs-w3m does not work with all such.

I think I can make emacs-w3m work with:


What I need to do is only one; that is to fix the following
broken link:

... <a href="#

However, is it really necessary to do so (even if Firefox works)?
If I do the fix, I have to verify that it causes no problem with
all cases.  If anything, I think it's better to ask the site
admin for correcting the web contents.

This issue has already been closed, hasn't it?  See:
