  |    Now, my current problem is:  how do I do the same thing when I access the
  |    Unix machine using X-windows?  I've had to resort to ESC-X instead of M-X.
  |    :(  I'm sure it's in the X docs somewhere, but I haven't taken the time to
  |    drag myself through them yet.
  | If Emacs is running in its own X window, it should recognize the Meta key
  | directly.  I've never had any problem with this, going as far back as X10
  | and the MIT Lispm X server.
  | If you're running the Emacs inside an xterm window, I don't know offhand
  | how to make the Meta key go through.  But why are you running Emacs this
  | way?

Good qeustion. Anyway, you may convince xterm (your shell within xterm)
to handle 8 bit input by doing either (or both):

	$ stty -istrip
	$ stty cs8
