Sigh. I figured out why the SPECIAL:FOO suggestion was totally wedged about three seconds after I had mailed off my note. My apologies for wasting everyone's time. (Apologies too to KMP for misrepresenting his intentions.) I won't insult your intelligence by suggesting such epicycles as USER:SPECIAL:PRINT-PRETTY and TV:SPECIAL:MOUSE-CURSOR-PATTERN That's what I get for shooting from the hip.
