But not with ALL double-byte text; only certain underlying text (seemingly
those lines with other things to fill in or radio buttons to select, but
not a consistency I can see).  If anyone can turn me on to an English form
with very long popup selection boxes that when popped up cover radio buttons,
I'd sure like to have the URL for testing.

Slang is much more "Kanji-savvy" than Screen.  Screen may be creating
many of the problems.  Anyway, I was starting to get the impression from
what John said that Slang doesn't erase the background, only overwrites.
