Yes, I did mean that.

Perhaps you're right and in this case that will do (I tried it, and it
might be what I want, or it might not, I'm not sure yet :-)

However, when the window is iconified, raising doesn't work.  Can someone
tell me how that's done?

(And still, when you look at Netscape for Windoze (yuk!): if you open
a new browser-window, you can select one from somewhere in the menus
and the selected one will get focus; but maybe this is a windoze thing,
because the Linux version of Netscape just raises the window but does
not give it focus...)
