Basic Usage
***********

   W3 is similar to the Info package all emacs users hold near and dear
to their heart (Note: Info, for a description of Info).
Basically, `space' and `backspace' control scrolling, and `return' or
`mouse2' will follow a hypertext link.  The `f' and `b' keys maneuver
around the various links on the page.

   On non-graphic terminals (vt100, DOS, etc), or with a graphics
terminal and old versions (18.xx) of emacs, hypertext links will be
surrounded by '[[' and ']]' by default.  On a graphics terminal with
newer versions of emacs (epoch, lucid, or FSF 19), the links will be in
bold print.  Note: Controlling Formatting for information on how to
change this, or for help on getting the highlighting to work on graphics
terminals.

   There are approximately 50 keys bound to special W3 functions.  The
basic rule of thumb regarding keybindings in W3 is that a lowercase key
will take an action on the current document, and an uppercase key will
take an action on the document pointed to by the hypertext link under
the cursor.

   There are several areas that the keybindings fall into: movement,
information, action, and miscellaneous.

* Movement
Moving around in a W3 buffer
* Information
Getting information about the W3 document you are viewing, and/or links within that document.
* Action
Taking actions in a W3 buffer (following links, printing, etc)
* Miscellaneous
Miscellaneous keybindings
