Images, huh..? What kind of terminal are you running screen+w3m on top
of..? Maye it's time for a couple of screenshots?

There's definitely a pattern I had failed to notice: all indentation on
the sample pages appears to follow one of those cute north-pointing
triangles. Initially, I had a feeling that ELinks not being able to
render the indentation might be caused by its limited support of CSS,
because specifying a Style of ‘None’ in a mozilla browser also removes
the indentation but it looks like I was wrong abou that.
