Emacs W3M mode is a front end to the w3m html-rendering program. You
must have w3m installed for this to work.

I'm using a version bundled with the cygwin unix emulation
(www.cygwin.com), but that may be a bit heavy.

I found a version compiled for windows platforms on sourceforge.net at
the following URL:
