Emacs people use `C-q' for not only emacs-w3m but also find-file
for entering such a special character, aren't we?  And also `C-y'
yanks copied text as is, does not treat `?' in it as a command.
But when you use the mouse to paste copied text on no-X Emacs,
it might behave like typing the keyboard one by one and Emacs
treats `?' as a command, as the case may be (it doesn't do so on
at least Cygwin, so I don't recall how to make the mouse button
behave like `C-y' now).
