Hi Thorsten,

Thanks for the thorough investigation.

The first problem I faced was that pressing the [Create account]
button didn't let emacs-w3m visit the new account creation form.
It says:

Cannot retrieve URL: http://picolisp.com/5000/13815749787811391~-2.html?*Menu=

Ok, "http://picolisp.com/5000/"; should be replaced with a base url
that the page specifies as you described.  So, I tried making
`w3m-form-parse-and-fontify' prefer `w3m-current-base-url' rather
than `w3m-current-url', and then I got the new account creation
form successfully.  Could you try the latest emacs-w3m CVS repo?

So far I'm unable to try logging in, since I haven't yet gotten
an initial password by a mail reply.
