Thanks for the comments. I am using GNU/Linux on a P4 box. w3m is
really handy. As I said earlier, w3m displays everything fine in
terminal, and my default coding system is utf-8 (both OS and emacs). 

Below are the snippets from the html source of the pages in question.

----------------------end snippet 1-----------------------------

----------------------start snippet 2---------------------------
;; -- put to distinguish the snippet from quoted text

^M comes after '>' and before 'And several' in the first snippet and
after '&#13' and before 'PHP supports' or 'Four scalar' in the
second. It seems there are no line feeds there.

I am inclined to think it is the problem of emacs-w3m, (not emacs, not
w3m), I am unsure, though.
