2/19    I program a lot by sshing to a Linux cluster.  So I'm used to using
        Xemacs to code.  This works fine from a Linux or Windows workstation,
        but sometimes I have to use a Mac.  On Mac, the meta is usually
        bound to option, but that often doesn't work over ssh for some reason.
        This makes using emacs a real pain.  Any suggestions on how to fix it?
        (Other than "use vi")
        \_ Are you using Terminal.app?  If so, go to the Terminal menu, click
           the Preferences... menu item, click the Settings button on the top
           of the window that pops up and then click the Keyboard button/tab
           in the right hand pane of that window.  There should be a checkbox
           at the bottom of that pane that says "Use option as meta key".
           Checking that box fixed this problem for me.
