Many many thanks for your suggestions, both of you. David, yours was
interesting because I had already tried that in the Aquamacs
Preferences and had no change at all. I tried adding the line to my
preferences.el and that didn't make much difference either.
So I stepped back to Thomas's suggestion and added it all in to my
preferences.el file (the line " ;; If you edit it by hand, you could
mess it up, so be careful." in customizations.el keeps me away!) and
it does what I think it should do.
I'm going to have another go with David's suggestion on a vanilla
install of my favourite ext editor. If it doesn't work there then
perhaps something is overriding it elsewhere in the Aquamacs
