Unfortunately we seem to have nothing to do[1] for it in
emacs-w3m since it's w3m's deed:

$ echo 'word1 &#149; word2'| w3m -halfdump -T text/html
word1 &#149;word2

This one does the same:

$ echo 'word1        &#149;        word2'| w3m -halfdump -T text/html

Firefox, Google Chrome, Konqueror, and IE8 display those examples
as "word1 <bullet> word2".  But the w3m solo doesn't display the
<bullet> symbol for "&#149;"; the result is "word1  word2".

An html file containing those examples is attached.  To try
halfdump, do:

$ cat test.html| w3m -halfdump -T text/html

I would highly appreciate the w3m team coping with this minor


[1] Though we can replace whitespace after "&#149;" with "&nbsp;"
 in an html source as a workaround before passing it to w3m, I'm
 not sure it is the right thing.
