I assume you are using w3? For starters, I'd recommend w3m. Get w3m
itself from http://w3m.sourceforge.net, then emacs-w3m from
http://emacs-w3m.namazu.org. Then just put (require 'mime-w3m) in your
init file. IMHO, w3m is much more stable than w3, and has better
rendering, even than lynx or other text-mode browsers.
(Incidentally, this is the second time this question has come up in
the past 24 hours... perhaps it's time to add it to the FAQ? Does
anybody know who maintains the English FAQ?)
I'd also recommend an upgrade to xemacs 21.4, but that's probably not
related to your current problem...
