[gnu.emacs.help] Re: Emacs/w3m textarea editing in same window

Dear Emacs-w3m team,

here is a question I sent to the gnu.emacs.help mailing list:

His solution is OK for me, but should better be configurable to be used
only when desired.

If you would consider this a reasonable thing for future w3m versions, I
could drop changing the function definition in my .emacs.

Thanks for Emacs-w3m,
