There's more to it than just that.

I just filed an emacs bug;
"mule-cmds.el just _assumes_ all of Taiwan uses Big5 and not UTF-8"

current-language-environment is a variable defined in `mule-cmds.el'.
Its value is "Chinese-BIG5"

and w3m-search.el also is sensitive to that too.

Anyways no matter zh_TW.UTF-8 or zh_TW.*, zh != ja, so w3m-search.el should
refrain from 帝國主義!

That won't help, because it is already nil. defcustom
w3m-search-engine-alist looks at more that just w3m-language.
