You're welcome.  Thank you for the information about emacs-w3m.

As far as I observed, google.cn uses <font color=CC0033>Emacs</font>
for highlighting while the others use <b>Emacs</b>.  The reason
<font ...> is not processed as expected is that the external w3m
command neither lets them pass through, nor supports transforming
such tags into the ones that emacs-w3m can handle, while generating
a halfdump.  For example:

$ echo '<font color=CC0033>Emacs</font>'| w3m -halfdump -T text/html

Because of this, there is no function that processes colors that
the web page specifies in <font ...> tags either in emacs-w3m.
On the other hand,

$ echo '<b>Emacs</b>'| w3m -halfdump -T text/html<b>Emacs</b>

emacs-w3m highlights it with the bold face.  Therefore, there is
currently no way to highlight words in google.cn pages
unfortunately, except for the use of the filter.  If you are
interested in it, try something like the following in your
~/.emacs-w3m.el file:

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
(setq w3m-use-filter t)

(defun my-w3m-filter-for-google-cn (&rest args)
  "Replace <font color=CC0033> tags with <b>'s."
  (goto-char (point-min))
  (while (re-search-forward "<font color=CC0033>\\([^<]+\\)</font>" nil t)
    (replace-match "<b>\\1</b>")))

(eval-after-load "w3m-filter"
  '(add-to-list 'w3m-filter-rules
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

I think this is due to the same reason above.

We may call it the lack of a function of both emacs-w3m and w3m
