This is a test of editing a wiki page using Nedit as the external editor in w3m. (w3m seems to be a little more readable than what I recall from Links or Lynx (are those the right names).

To see what a table looks like in w3m:

This is a very small table
This is a different line to look for extra spaces
This is a very small table

Hmm, I see the text, but no lines — I so see extra horizontal spacing (to maintain columns) that might hint it is formatted as a table.

Some other points:

  • looks like I do have to close nedit to get "back" to w3m (which is sort of OK as it keeps me from making the mistake of going back in my browser, but which does take longer) (I haven't found a way to go back from preview to edit — I guess I'd have to add an Edit button on the preview page.

  • At one point I switched back to the open konsole window containing w3m to copy and then paste what you see below — when I did that, I lost the nedit window I was using for edit, and never found it again (and lost the edits I had done) — don't know (I'll try later) if that's going to be a general problem (switching to another window) or that was specifically because I switched back to the w3m konsole window (that seems likely, but I'm going to save these edits before testing wink

  • I had trouble setting up the environment VISUAL — I got an error message each time, but one of the following apparently worked. I'm not sure of the significance of "_=VISUAL", but I see a similar line for EDITOR

  
rhk@system5:~$ VISUAL=/usr/bin/nedit
rhk@system5:~$ export $VISUAL

rhk@system5:~$ set VISUAL=/usr/bin/nedit

rhk@system5:~$ set VISUAL="/usr/bin/nedit"
rhk@system5:~$ export $VISUAL
bash: export: `/usr/bin/nedit': not a valid identifier
rhk@system5:~$ export VISUAL
rhk@system5:~$ set | grep VISUAL
VISUAL=/usr/bin/nedit
_=VISUAL
