[copied from the Netscape.README file which comes the the Navigator
package distributed by Netscape]


 * Included with all distributions is a file called XKeysymDB.  Without
this file, many warnings about "unknown keysyms" will be generated when
the program starts up, and most keyboard equivalents won't work.  This is
a general problem with running Motif programs on systems not configured
for Motif, and so will be necessary on most Sun systems. 
This file is included with all packages because some systems have an older
version of this file, so you may still get some warnings.  The XKeysymDB
file normally goes in /usr/lib/X11/XKeysymDB or
/usr/openwin/lib/XKeysymDB, but you can override that with $XKEYSYMDB.
