.screenrc and .Xdefaults (for rxvt)

Use SHIFT+PGUP and SHIFT+PGDOWN to scroll in rxvt. Here are my .Xdefaults and .screenrc config files. A lot of the .screenrc stuff is from Mark Pilgrim. I don't use his "nowplaying" script, but the caption seems to still work.
! ~/.Xdefaults
Rxvt*background: #000033

Rxvt*font: 14
Rxvt*geometry: 80x40
Rxvt*jumpScroll: True
Rxvt*scrollBar: False
Rxvt*scrollTtyOutput: False
Rxvt*scrollTtyKeypress: True
