at the bottom is the grepped emacs stuff out of my .Xresources, replace my
colours with those you like - but it should also be possible to change it
under the menu help/customize...

xemacs has some icons... if you need them, you should use that thing, but
you pay for those [silly ;-)] buttons and icons. font-lock is much slower, at
least factor 10 I'd say (making in unusable for big data fields in R-Mode on
a 2xP166), also the speed of the customizing stuff is no fun. I was used to
use xemacs, but it crashed on a friend's Cyrix 5x86 (even self-compiled). So
I tried the original emacs and was impressed. With the following stuff it
also looks nice, IMHO. I also changed the font-lock colours a bit.
