Since you see the problem directly from w3m in an xterm it isn't a
problem with emacs.  However it is an emacs wiki page and so that
gives some cover for it.

This works okay for me.  I cannot recreate the problem.

Here are some ideas.  What system are you operating from?  You didn't
say.  It is an xterm so I might assume some generic GNU/Linux system.

How up to date is it?  The error reminds me of other errors I have
seen when the client system is old enough that it only supports SSLv3
connecting to a web server that no longer supports SSLv3 anymore.

Looking at the handshake connecting to it I see that it only supports
TLS v1.1 and v1.2.  I am rather expect that your client might not be
supporting one of those two protocols.
