I've got my keyboard mapped to send DEL as the erase character.  This
doesn't cause any problems and behaves the way I want it to.  However,
when I use Linux Netscrape, it doesn't delete backwards, only the
character the cursor is under.

It looks as though Linux's version has ^H hardcoded as the
backspace/erase character.  I know I could use xmodmap to swith the
keys around.  However, this isn't a good solution because while it
solve the problems for Netscape, it changes around the rest of my
setup.

So, does anyone out there know of a way I can change this around
without me haveing to muck up the rest of my setup?

Thanks in advance.
