Just this:

emacs*pointerColor: khaki
emacs*cursorColor:  khaki
emacs*background:   #286040
emacs*foreground:   #c8c8c8
emacs*geometry:     =85x33+0+0
emacs*font:         10x20

So the background is not *exactly* dark green, but it's close.

That's what I figured.  Hey, thanks for all your work on emacs!
