Your explanation of syntax much clearer than the manual
document. Thanks.

I suspect I got confused on the relation of ssh and ftp. I thought the
choice was between unaided ftp and ftp using the ssh protocol, not
simply ftp or ssh.

Strange. The *Messages* buffer tells me ispell is loaded, but nothing
about tramp being loaded. On the other hand, M-x tramp-version returns
2.0.42. So it seems that emacs is tramp aware, but not loading it. It
is very useful to know that emacs must load tramp initially.

I think I'd best continue these experiments on my new setup, because
if emacs is broken, then any results may be meaningless. I'll put the
tramp statements in the ~./emacs file on the new setup, and then try
to use tramp with ssh and get back to you with the result. 

Thanks for your patient consideration.
