thanks a lot for the offer. actually there is one thing you could  
probably give me a hint for: in DPS (display postscript) there is no  
XOR mode. what we have instead for such occasions is a concept  
called 'instance drawing': you take the current contents of a  
window, turn instance drawing on and you can draw whatever you like  
onto the window. the point is that when you make a 'new instance',  
the old contents of the window are restored.

at the moment i have just ignored XOR-mode. any idea?

btw: i have added two screenshots of the JDE running under NEXTSTEP  
to the homepage. check it out!
