up and page down.

I thinks that's because the X11 server sends Emacs the keysyms named Next and
Prior when the PageUp And PageDown keys are pressed.

OK, that means all you need to do is make C-h b,
C-h w give the more common names these days for prior etc. in addition
to prior etc.

I guess you could translate [next] and [prior] to [pageup] and [pagedown] in

function-key-map, and then substitute the new function keys for the old ones
in all the keymaps.
