I'm seeing the opposite, delete works like backspace, but only in Netscape
4.04. Other X applications behave correctly. Does anyone have an idea
what would cause this and how to fix it? 'xmodmap -pk' shows delete as
keycode 107 and backspace as keycode 22, which looks correct. The
Netscape.ad file refers to the FAQ, but I don't find this covered there.
