	Well, unless you want a real brainache and have macha disk space,
Mozilla is probably out. I've used Grail (what better name for a program
running on a scripting language called Python :-). It lacks JavaScript,
but does have some Java support IIRC. It's still in beta(?) but I think
it'll do you better than Mosaic in most places.

	A PMAGB-B can be had on EBay for about $8-$20 if your monitor will
deal with the sync rates.

	The package Xmodmap(?) is a graphical keyboard mapping editor that
might fix your problem. Otherwise xmodmap (text based, but comes with X
IIRC) should let you fix keyboard mappings. There are also a few
replacements for xterm in the package collection that support color, TEK,
etc.; one of those might help you.
