Scott I tried the different fonts and font keywords and got lots of
different results so I think that it is just a font issue.

I get the weird aspect when I use this combination font_80=System But I
found if I drag it to a different size it will go to a normal looking size.

Also when I use the option font_132=anyfont it doesn't change the font (why
is that and what the heck is font_132 and 80) (keep in mind I'm a network
support guy.)

I played with the beepfile thing and that's pretty cool ||Two thumbs up||

I wish I could offer help for this but I'm not much help.

Also once I've compiled this on my machine is there any reason (keep in mind
the network support thing) I can't just grab the .exe and .dll and move it
to a different machine?

That could be the font...  Did you try any other fonts?  (i.e. with the
font_80 & font_132 keywords)

Try something like:

       font_80=Courier New

and tell me if that helps, or if it's something else?  (I've only tried
the emulator at 1024 x 768)

That'd be great.

(At this point I haven't done anything, the keys are hardcoded in the
source code for winterm.c)

I was thinking about this issue...  It'd be awfully nice to come up with
a way to do keyboard maps that would be consistent across all of the
different terminal objects -- but is that even possible?

The way the Linux/BSD/U**X terminals read keyboards and the way that
Windows reads keyboards is radically different.  (And I'm not sure about
GTK, yet, but I suspect it's more like Windows)

If possible, I'd like to end up with a nice little program where you can
simply pick which key to re-map, and then press the key you want to use.
Find a way to make this work with all interfaces, and it'd be ideal...

> Colors?

These are also hardcoded in the source of winterm.c.  It'd be reasonably
simple to read this from a file and set the values accordingly...  I just
haven't had time to do it yet.  Again, I'd like to find a way to make the
configuration consistent across platforms..

Thanks for the input!  Keep it coming... :)
