comment can a hacked DNS make a fake certificate seem legitimate?
There's certainly a risk of trust being misplaced, but that's a debate that's systemic to the entire mechanism of chaining trust. People who are really curious what that padlock actually means would do well to read up on how public key infrastructure works.

comment Which character encoding is used for ALT-codes?
I'd say it's very doubtful that this is actually implemented by the programs themselves. Rather, it's probably implemented by some of the underlying UI primitives, such as the Edit control. Just testing around in various places in the current UI, I find that any place I can place a cursor, I can make use of the alt method for entering chars. If you look at the documentation for the Rich Edit Control, you'll see the Alt+Numpad shortcut, and a few others related to it. msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/desktop/…

comment Smooth scrolling in Emacs/Windows
Sadly, neither solutions offered on that page does anything in Windows (might work on Linux, didn't test). It works when I just press downwards once, but if I keep it down, the screen does not update until I let go (well the scroll does move...), which is clearly not really useful at all.

comment Smooth scrolling in Emacs/Windows
Well, I didn't mean with my mouse either. Just standard Ctrl-N or the arrow down key on your keyboard. But as I mentioned, the wiki stuff doesn't work for Windows at all (well the upwards direction is semi-tolerable, downwards not at all)

comment 'less' command clearing screen upon exit - how to switch it off?
Presumably you need the scrolling aspect of less, so more would not be suitable?
