I realized there is one problem that cannot be tolerated in the
patch.  Japanese text can be folded even at the middle of a word,
but a program should never put space characters there when
rendering the text.  However, not only the patched w3m but also
Firefox 3.0 do it.  OTOH, the original w3m and IE 7 do not it.
I'm confused, but I feel like that the original w3m and IE 7 do
the right thing.  You can test it with this page:


Maybe the best way w3m goes is to preserve only space characters
between graphical characters.
