sorry for the late reply, somehow missed you message.

E.g. searching for the org-mode ARCHIVE tag I might type:

1. G (or M-x w3m-goto-url-new-session)

2. org-mode :ARCHIVE:

and then get

| Location: org-mode :ARCHIVE:                                         
| Cannot retrieve URL: org-mode%20:ARCHIVE:
| Something seems to be wrong with URL or this system.

Of cource I could simply leave the colons out, but sometimes they should
be part of the search string, and I wonder how to excape them.
