You are still missing the boat.  You have installed an X11R6 server and
Netscape is linked against X11R5 libraries.


You are probably missing the R5 keysym localization data.

It will be located in /usr/lib/X11/nls.

Assuming you found it somewhere and installed it.

Without this data file, it will not have translations bound for the
XKeysymDB file to look up for your keys.

Even if your keysymdb exists.

This is tantamount to fixing a problem with your password file and
complaining that you still can't login, when really the problem is
that your shell doesn't exist.  8-).
