hey thx this was very helpful  : )

one more emacs question pls?

I am trying to have emacs display with a black bg, white fg. I have 
created a .Xresources file in my home directory. I put the .Xresources 
file in my FILESEARCHPATH. No dice - white bg. I have searched in every 
FAQ I can find, but am still not able to determine why emacs ignores my 
.Xresources. Is this even the best way to control this behavior?

Thanks for any suggestions!
