Well, the first part fails:

M-:  (setq w3m-pop-up-windoes nil) <RET>
M-:  (setq w3m-pop-up-frames t) <RET>

Then `browse-url-of-file' still retrieves the content of html file to 
*w3m* buffer.
>From *Messages*:
  The content (file:/var/www/html/index.html) has been retrieved in

M-: (setq special-display-buffer-names "*w3m*")  
or (setq special-display-buffer-names "w3m")
  no asterisks

Neither of those cause the buffer to be displayed either.  It stll
shows up in *w3m* undisplayed.

M-: (setq special-display-buffer-names ' "*w3m*") 
Doesn't do it either.

Finally: Eval: (set-default special-display-regex (w3m)) <RET>

Actually works but causes an error too.
eval: Wrong type argument: symbolp, "w3m"

I'm having serious trouble getting the lisp right.
