Gack... good point.

I'll confess to only scanning the page... I got far enough to see that
there was an enhanced version and went to it without further ado.

And please note that in saying the wiki didn't make it clear. There
was no disparagement intended.  That's why I did include the
proviso... `at least not to me'.

I did thank Erik and I should have thanked the wiki authors... then
too, but will do so now.

Thanks to wiki builders... very helpful.
And thanks to Drew in particular

I find both the details and details+ to be very useful when I have to
use emacs on windows.... somehow the default setup has never bothered
me on unix/linux... probably something to do with system fonts causing
the windows view to be too wide for the size windows I prefer.
