Okay, but I'll wait until I learn more.

It does, but the default is whatever directory has had the focus most
recently. I think I should have to tell emacs where the sources are only
once, not every session.

I added this to .emacs:

(setq source-directory "E:\\emacs\\emacs\\src\\") so it points to the src
directory itself. I.e., src is at the same level as bin, data, lisp, etc,
et cetera.

No, on W98 it doesn't work with the mouse either on menu- or toolbar. I
need it to work until I learn dired better.

Does that mean that you agree with this reported behavior and that it
doesn't work for you either?

That makes sense. I needed arialuni.ttf in order to learn about using
utf-8 and getting exotic characters from different unicode ranges into the
same buffer and file. I guess I can live with the empty rectangles as long
as I'm sure the correct bytes are "underneath" them. But it's nice to have
some degree of wysiwyg.
