\fIw3m\fP is a World Wide Web (WWW) text based client. It has English
and Japanese help files and an option menu and can be configured to
use either language. It will display hypertext markup language (HTML)
documents containing links to files residing on the local system, as
well as files residing on remote systems. It can display HTML tables
and frames.  In addition, it can be used as a "pager" in much the same
manner as "more" or "less".  Current versions of \fBw3m\fP run on
Unix (Solaris, SunOS, HP-UX, Linux, FreeBSD, and EWS4800) and on
Microsoft Windows 9x/NT.

at the command line.  For help with runtime options, press \fI"H"\fP
