For various reasons, I was stuck using vim.exe instead of gvim.exe on windows recently.
One of the only irritating aspects of this was that the alt-key did not work. (Mouse didn't work for scrolling either). When I tried to use alt-up (arrow), I got an 'I'-like character inserted instead of my chosen mapping.
'ga' lists it as 206, Hex 00ce, Octal 316.
Any idea what this is or how to fix this?
(vim 7.3, windows xp)
