Well, thanks for the update.

Given that, how *do* I get the newest emacs dll-or-whatever, already
built (I sure don't want to do it for windows!).

Exactly which url will I find it on?  (Please!  Having never even
heard of Bazaar (soon will wikipedia it) and with NTemacs
no longer the latest and best thing and my resulting confusion
from all that, instead of my usual hunting around, googling, etc, I'd
rather rely directly on you, who seems to have all this new stuff
at your fingertips.  THANK YOU, Stefan!)

After I try your suggestion, and can get it to work on *my*
Dell-xp computer, I'll go update all the places I told
how wonderful NTEMACS was.

Thanks again.

David
