 [cntrl]+[alt]+[+]  and [cntrl]+[alt]+[-]

cycle through the list of resolutions for a display.

     Subsection "Display"
        Depth       8
        Modes        "1280x1024" "1024x768" "800x600" "640x480"
        ViewPort    0 0
        Virtual     1280 1024

The first entry on the Modes line is the mode that the server will start in.
CA+ will cycle to the "1024x768" entry and CA- will move back to "1280x1024"

Is it clear from the above?  Have more than one mode in the Mode line.
