In both cases you have to upgrade. For example I am running vm 7.18,
and a recent version of Emacs/W3 from the CVS repository. Instead of
using Emacs/W3, many Emacspeak enthusiasts are now running @eM, a
text-mode Web browser with a good Emacs Lisp interface.

All of these are readily available as Debian packages, but as you are
running an RPM-based distribution you will have to search the net for
source code or RPM packages.
The Emacs/W3 CVS repository is at
with no password; you need the w3 and url packages, i.e.,
cvs co w3
cvs co url
