setting $TERM won't help with VMS :-)

Now... you could use the xterm option to tell it (in effect) to tell
the host not to send 8-bit controls:

man xterm:

       -ti term_id
               Specify  the  name used by xterm to select the correct response
               to terminal ID queries.  It also specifies the emulation level,
               used  to  determine  the  type  of  response  to  a  DA control
               sequence.  Valid values  include  vt52,  vt100,  vt101,  vt102,
               vt220,  and  vt240  (the  “vt”  is  optional).   The default is
               “vt420”.  The term_id argument specifies  the  terminal  ID  to
               use.  (This is the same as the decTerminalID resource).

That is,

	xterm -ti 100


	xterm -ti 102

and if the host is behaving properly, it'll give up on 8-bit controls.

Of course, VT100's have no function keys (F1-F12), nor Home/End,
PageUp/PageDown, but cursor-keys should work.  Your experience here
will depend on what the applications are using.
