I am running vncserver on Solaris 2.7
I am running vncviewer r7 on Windows 98
The unix program "emacs" has commands that require the ALT key and the META
key modifiers.
On my PC keyboard the ALT key appears to be translated to the META key and I
can not find a way to send the ALT key to emacs.
CTRL key works fine.
Is it possible to redefine a key for the "ALT" modifier?
Or maybe to toggle the definition of what the ALT key does?
  - have it behave as META until you select a menu function or press a
special key combination, and then from then on it would be ALT
