Thanks again! I tried your commands and now it looks great!!!
Actually, your commands worked *better* than I imagined they
*could* and I wanted to ask a question about that if you don't mind....

All of my color settings had to be put into "default-frame-alist"
so that they showed up in *all* windows/modes/etc.....

(setq default-frame-alist 
   '((cursor-color . "red") (background-color . "black") (foreground-color . 
"khaki")) )

However, YOUR commands seem to be universal without having
to be stuffed into an "alist" like above.  How come Emacs
likes your color commands and makes them universal but
my commands like "background-color" are not universal if
I set them with set- command like you did?????

Chris
