  Before trying to track down your problem any further, I would strongly urge
you to get the most recent version of less.

  It was just posted in alt.sources today or yesterday.  And it's version 170,
which is *significantly* different from your version.  It probably already
fixes the problems you are having.

The system the less is running on is bsd4.3 unix.
The version number shown by running 'less' is "version 97".

I like 'less' for many reasons.  It scroll back and forth.  It do searches both
ways.  'Less' offer so much more 'More' can offer. :-)

One drawe back tho...  'Less' don't display highlights invoked by ^[[1m series.
'Less' also doesn't display '^[(0   ^[(B' ansi graphics.  As a result, I
have to stick with more.  Could I be terrible wrong about this?  I hope so.
Please enlighten me.

        p.s.    if you don't know what I was talking about in '^[[1m' and
                '^[(0' and '^[(B'.  I'll try to display them.  Your terminal
                might not be able to display them.

                Here goes ...

                [1m  'This should be in highlight' [0m
                (0  ijklijklaaaa (B

Thanks for any help!!!

1. less-like pager with HTML syntax highlighting?

I've been using less as my HTML source viewer for a while and I want
to get something with syntax highlighting.  Is there anything that
does this which has similar keybindings to less?
