Thanks, Stefan.  But I'm still confused by what you say.

M-x version says this:
   GNU Emacs 23.0.0.1 (i386-mingw-nt5.1.2600) of 2007-08-18 on TPAD

And yes, I did indeed download something called NTemacs.

   http://ntemacs.sourceforge.net/  is one place that has one.

(Actually, I forget where I got "mine" from.)


Thanks!

David
