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


Sorry for the late response, but emacs-w3m now got to use the whole
current window for the txtarea if you've added "*w3m form textarea*"
to `same-window-buffer-names', thanks to Naohiro Aota.  Currently
the feature is available only in Emacs, not XEmacs, though.  Could
you try the CVS version[1]?

[1] See http://emacs-w3m.namazu.org/index-en.html#download
    or just get: http://cvs.namazu.org/emacs-w3m.tar.gz
