Thanks.  I've installed it.

I see.  But I didn't remove "their" because the `w3m-save-image'
command, that saves image data one by one, does not use this
variable as the default value.

"Next Page" means a page that will appear by the manu-bar button
or the tool-bar button named "Forward to Next Page" (the command
`w3m-view-next-page').  So, should it be more definite something
like this?

You can click the "Forward to Next Page" button on the menu-bar
or the tool-bar to view the saved page.

Some web sites send html data so as to be suitable for an
HTTP/1.0 compliant old web browser, that is, emacs-w3m.  So, if
viewing the saved data by a modern browser, the appearance will
not necessarily be the same as the modern browser that connects
to the site directly.

Is there a way to explain it much compactly? :)

Installed.  Thanks again.


P.S. The emacs-w3m mailing list seems to be down now.  I'll ask
the maintainer for repairing it.
