First I'd like to know if you can see it in an xterm. I can perfectly
fine see it in openoffice or gvim, but not in xterm or vim. It works
in uxterm, though :-)). If it works in your xterm, can you post the

but on the laptop I don't need them this often.

Except for my xterm question above, I'm happy. You've helped a lot. Thanks.
