Under X11, use

    xterm -132

as your terminal, and 132 column switching escape sequences works.
I don't know why they don't just enable this by default. You can also
turn it on via shift-middleclick.

if you shift-leftclick and enable the vt220 keyboard, xterm maps
PF1-PF4 to F1-F4, and most of the Fn keys to the
corresponging F key on the PC keyboard.
Some other keys (help, etc.) get mapped to shift-Fn keys.
