Are you sure you don't mean _Control_ instead of Command? I don't think that
the command key alters the value of the character code; it just sets a
bit. OTOH, if you have you special chars mapped to _Control_-A, _Control_-B,
etc., then you have to "quote" them (with Control-Q) in order to get MCL to
insert them. So you'd type Control-Q Control-A to get your special Control-A
character into a Fred buffer in MCL. I suppose you could also modify the Fred
comtab to get it to insert your characters instead of treating them as
