Terminal .term files, backspace delete swap
I am trying to set up a dock application that will run ssh in to a Linux system at work. I've got an AppleScript app that launches a .term file which does the job. However, I cannot figure out what XML to put in the .term file to get it to swap backspace and delete.
I don't want to change the default settings for all Terminals. I just want this one to have the swap (and perhaps other keymappings later, if I am brave enough).
I've found an example .term file which included a key (DeleteKeySendsBackspace) that looks like it would do the job, but it does not work when I try it in my .term file.
I've also tried exporting settings from Terminal and then using the keys it generates, but that doesn't seem to work either.
I am running OS X 10.5.2 with Terminal 2.0.1. I've included what I have in the .term file so far. If this is the wrong forum, can you let me know where I should post the query?
