Mark, I was asking where I would find the "little blinking numbers" and how to tell which one to put in the corner, not how to send the help sequence. None of the documentation you referenced explained this. At any rate, I've already done a "best guess scenario" with the help from Buck Calabro, and put it into CVS. I decided to forego having those numbers blink in the corner, and simply display the human-readable error message immediately.
