Booth,

I still haven't found anything better for heads down keying than a
boring green screen.

But as the AS/400 leaves accounting, heads down keying is -not- what is
being done.  I agree with you that a more robust interface is desired. 
IMHO, the browser interface will be the look of choice for these users.

Maybe that's why IBM is pushing JAVA, XML and Linux in their developer
works radio ads.

Our new development dollars aren't being allocated to add any bells to
5250 displays.  They will have to live with whatever V3R2 and the
TN5250e client can handle.
