Good guess Kevin thanks.  I see there is another problem involved and
maybe pushing my luck here but here goes:

With the above in place, the effect is for w3m to browse the subject
file (in working html buffer) when one calles `browse-url-of-file'.
Only problem is that it pulls it up in a *w3m* buffer you then have to
switch to.

I don't see a function in w3m commands that will make it appear in
another window or even frame, can you take a guess at how to make the
browsed file appear in an immediately accessable window or even for
focus to switch to wherever it is being browsed?
