COOL!  


THANK YOU!!!


But -- what's this use of the ALT key?

Does nothing (as prefix) for me -- msg still goes to minibuf (or whatever
it's called).

Now, I'm using a SUN keyboard (with control-key in "right",
"old-time" location, left of "a"), on sunBlade-100, Solaris 9.

What effect might that have (on my ALT working differently
from yours)?


Thanks,

David
