Re: How are .Xdefaults files handled under Debian?
While I might indeed have created problems for myself, I NEVER have
capitalized an xterm entry. All of the examples for Xdefaults and
Xresources that I have seen through the years have never had "xTerm",
"Xterm", or "XTerm". While I am quite sure that the resource and resource
class keywords are case sensitive, I am not so sure about the program
Also, the resources such as srollBar seem to accept 'yes', 'true', 'on',
and 'no', 'false', 'off' as synonymous sets.

See! They do get some things right!
