Mac SE/30

I want to map the arrow keys on my keyboard so I don't have to use h,j,k &l.  When I issue the :map command the vi editor displays the map assignments for page up, down & the arrow keys.  However, the assignment for the cursor movement are not correct for a Mac Std or Mac Ext keybord.

The .exrc file contains ^[[A, ^[[B, ^[[C & ^[[D for the functions of UP, DOWN, RIGHT, & LEFT.  This is all wrong my Mac uses ^[0A, ^[0B, ^[0C & ^[0D.  

How do I assign map and how do I delete existing mappings
Type  vi .exrc

Type :                                *** this will place cursor at bottom of screen
Type :map                         *** this display the map settings

Type : ctl-v{up arrow}  j     *** this will give the result of :^[0A  j   
Type <return>                   *** :^[0A  j   will be displayed as last line of the map display

the vi display of the maps do not have :'s  in display lines

this does not work when I try it
