You work for Milwaukee Valve?  Not the one on Burrell St?!  I'm at
Klement's Sausage Co... across the street from that...

Ignore the whole ".Xdefaults" and ".Xresources" idea.  Instead, make
your changes in /usr/local/share/tn5250/XTerm  (it might be installed
somewhere else on your system, tho... you might need to do something
like "find / | grep tn5250/XTerm" to find it.
(and make sure you capitalize the X & T in XTerm)

There are already keyboard mappings set up in that file, so you'll
be able to see what needs to be done a little bit better.

This only works when using the xterm version of tn5250 (xt5250).  For
other versions, you need to the keyboard mapping differently.
