Action
======

   First, here are the keys and functions that will bring up a new
hypertext page, usually creating a new buffer.
`return'
     Pressing return attempts to follow the link under the cursor.

`button2, M-x w3-follow-mouse'
     This function expects to be bound to a mouse button.  It movess to
     the point under mouse and try to fetch the link that was clicked
     on.  If no link is found, a message is displayed in the minibuffer.

`C-button2, M-return, M-x w3-follow-inlined-image'
     This function tries to retrieve the inlined image that is under
     point.  It ignores any form entry areas or hyperlinks, and blindly
     follows any inlined image.  Useful for seeing images that are
     meant to be used as hyperlinks when you are not on a terminal
     capable of displaying graphics.

`m, M-x w3-complete-link'
     This will do a completing-read on all the hypertext links in the
     current buffer.  You can use `space' and `tab' to complete on the
     links.

`r, g, M-x w3-reload-document'
     This reloads the current document - the current buffer is killed,
     and the URL it was visiting is fetched and redisplayed.  Your
     position within the buffer remains the same (unless the document
     has changed since you last retrieved it, in which case it should
     be relatively close).

`C-o, M-x w3-fetch'
     This function prompts for a URL in the minibuffer, and attempts to
     fetch it.  If there are any errors, or W3 cannot understand the
     type of link you requested, the errors are displayed in a
     hypertext buffer.

`o, M-x w3-open-local'
     Find a local file, interactively.  This prompts you for a local
     file name to open.  The file must exist, and may be a directory.
     If the requested file is a directory and `w3-directory-format' is
     `'dired', then a dired-mode buffer is displayed.  If `'hypertext',
     then W3 automatically generates a hypertext listing of the
     directory.  `'hypertext' is the default, so that all the keys and
     functions remain the same.

`M-s, M-x w3-search'
     Perform a search, if this is a searchable index.  This sends a
     string of the type `'URL?search-terms'' to the server this
     document was retrieved from.  Searching requires a server, W3 can
     not do local file searching, as there are too many possible types
     of searches people could want to do.

`C-c C-b, M-x w3-show-history-list'
     If `w3-keep-history' is non-`nil', then W3 keeps track of all the
     URLs you visit in an Emacs session.  This function takes all the
     links that are in that internal list, and formats them as hypertext
     links in a list.

   And here are the commands to move around between W3 buffers:

`l, M-x w3-goto-last-buffer'
     Go to last WWW buffer visited

`q, M-x w3-quit'
     Quits WWW mode.  This kills the current buffer and goes to the most
     recently visited buffer.

`u, M-x w3-leave-buffer'
     This is similar to w3-quit, but the buffer is not killed, it is
     moved to the bottom of the buffer list (so it is the least likely
     to show up as the default with switch-to-buffer).

`B, M-x w3-backward-in-history'
     This will take you one step back along the path in the current
     history.  Will have no effect if you are at the beginning of your
     history list.

`F, M-x w3-forward-in-history'
     This will take you one step forward along the path in the current
     history.  Will have no effect if you are at the end of your history
     list.
