Firefox and IE shows it as "", not " ".  I don't know which is
better, nor what we should do for other unprintable characters,
but it would probably be reasonable to make emacs-w3m behave
like w3m.  For now, I've added `(?\C-m . ? )' to
`w3m-extra-numeric-character-reference' (of which the docstring
begins with "*", so you can modify it in your taste ;-).
