actually, it's worse. i'm using motif with clim2, so it looks nice,
but the scroll-bars have no mouse-doc, and command buttons don't
either, and have no default highlighting. this takes a little getting
Motif does not have any concept of pointer documentation, nor does it
have the concept of highlighting buttons. I could argue that it is
purely optional as to whether pointer documentation should appear when
the pointer is over any Motif gadget (although I think it would be
nice), and I would argue that it is definitely wrong to add highlighting
to things like Motif buttons because that it not part of the Motif
if you create a command-menu pane and use it, those commands will
highlight and mouse-doc as before. but you'll also get another
command-menu bar at the top of the frame, and these buttons are the
motif-looking buttons, which do not.
I can probably live without the highlighting, but I'd really like the
mouse-doc to still be active.
