Thanks: with `+keep' top and side margin seem all right now.  `-hl' is not so
important after all.  I say `-hl brown' and get blue instead.  But what is quite
important is the Ctrl-+ function, which does not work, whereas Ctrl-- works
fine.  It is much faster than using the `s' key, so I wish I could fix it.  Any

Thanks sincerely,
