i've got a copy of QVT/Term and every time i press Delete, a funny symbol comes up.  I've tried to match the keyboard keys to their equivalent counterparts in the VT220 specification but with only little success.  

Can anyone guide me how to do the mapping?

Note that
stty erase [Del]
will set you up to delete the character
to the left of the cursor, usually
more expected of [Backspace] or ^H.
Don't know if stty has an option to set
a key to delete at the current position,
the way a word processor normally does.
Of course, command line editing like
ksh's EDITOR=vi will allow it.
