OK, but it seems to make too much excitement in the mode line for my
tastes.

Wait, I see in *Help*
  %p -- print percent of buffer above top of window, or Top, Bot or All.
  %P -- print percent of buffer above bottom of window, perhaps plus Top,
        or print Bottom or All.

Apparently emacs is using one of them and I want to try the other, instead.

But long browsing in Info doesn't tell how to switch this part of the
mode line.  OK, back in *Help*
     mode-line-format's value is shown below...You can customize this variable.
But maybe it is default-mode-line-format that i want to customize, not
this.  Plus I want to just add a couple lines to .emacs and not mess
with the customization Automatic Teller interface.

So how do I use the other %P/p?  If I were to just paste the whole
default-mode-line-format into my .emacs just to change one char, my
.emacs would grow by 50 lines.

I was going to send you email, but I refuse to take the decoding exam
(Which I was inflicting on others too, only last year :-) See the
heartwarming story of how I came to grips with spam, and restored
honour to my email address, in http://jidanni.org/comp/config_en.html#spam )
