w3 / TODO

Diff from to
 BUGS (4.0):
-- need to support HTTP/0.9 (http://c2.com:8080) responses
-- /etc/mailcap cannot overide builtin mm-mime-data stuff?
-- try to protect people from using '~' in file URLs
-- keystrokes entered while in w3-pause self-insert under XEmacs - the
-  loop around dispatch-event needs to be smarter about what it
-  swallows.
+- trim down w3-sysdp.el to be just the stuff it really needs
 - border-color can have multiple color specifications, but we
   currently choke with 'args out of range' when we see this.
 - widget appears to be stealing button3 to mean 'activate' - this is
   bogus!  We lose all context-sensitive menus because of this.
 - We still seem to be growing the line size under Emacs 19.x/20.x
-- It would be really nice if w3 buffers were put into w3-mode as soon
-  as they were created. Then if the rendering craps out somehow then
-  the buffer could be browsed such as it was. Ideally, links and
-  widgets would be functional.
 - document how to translate Netscape foo.pac files to emacs lisp
-- Should we stop using reporter.el?
 
 BUGS (4.1):
 - background colors are not heeded on table rows (<tr>).  Same
   able to use imagemaps in different files, any position, etc, etc.
 
 FEATURES (4.1)
+- More tweaks to the hotindex stuff from Laurent Martelli <martelli@iie.cnam.fr>
+    + Ask  to delete unresolved  entries.  Right now, keywords are
+    associated to hotlist entries on the basis of entry names.  It
+    means  that if you  rename  an  entry with a  hotindex-unaware
+    W3/Emacs, hotindex will refuse  work. Same thing if you delete
+    an entry. Of course, it would really be better to use the href
+    instead of the entry name.
+
+    +  Keywords weighting :  it  would be  nice to give  different
+    weight to keywords  in  order to  precise the  relevance  of a
+    keyword for a document. Query results woudl  then be sorted by
+    relevance.
+
+    +  Hotindex file  sharing  :  wouldn't it  be   nice  to share
+    keywords files with your friends? Ideally,  one should be able
+    to specify a list of keywords file to search in. Entries found
+    in the first files would match  better than those found at the
+    end. 
+
+    + Automatically add  keywords found in  meta  tags and procide
+    additional methods to automatically index documents.
+
+    * Multi keyword search
+- w3-(un)?plugged, w3-toggle-plugged to control url-standalone-mode in
+  a convenient, user-friendly way.
+- Nice custom-y way to create an HTTP request.  This would allow
+  people to use HTTP PUT to upload documents to HTTP servers, etc.
 - cache a formatted version of documents, with enough info to recreate
   the widgets in them.
-- w3-preview-region command
-- LDAP support (XEmacs)
-- New proxy type for sending requests via mail to a mail->web->mail gateway.
+- keystrokes and supporting infrastructure to prefetch URLs from
+  within a document that you are likely to read next.  Don't even parse
+  or render them David Kastrup <dak@neuroinformatik.ruhr-uni-bochum.de>
 - Emacspeak Interaction
   - some way of specifying in a stylesheet whether certain text is
     inaudible.  use the 'inaudible text property for this.
