Many thanks for that. I will do so immediately.

That certainly sounds likely.

Very interesting. I was using customize to set what appeared to be the
relevant options for browsers. What I was using was w3m-browse-url, and
so I thought it would work, but I must have been clouding something up
somehow. The lines you gave above did work, and so now things are
operating as I would have expected them to, though I am unsure how I
messed up the settings via customize.
Many thanks for the help.
