problems with emacs xml-mode

I have the xml-mode installed for emacs (running on WinNT 4.0), using the
most current versions of each. Although I can edit XML docs reasonably
well, I have a couple of significant problems. I'm not a regular emacs
user, so maybe the solution lies is configuring emacs for NT.
1. The right mouse button doesn't bring up the context menu, but
shift-rightMouse does bring up the menu. Right mouse button alone does nothing.
2. The DTD is parsed, but all element names are folded into all lower case.
Does the current version of xml-mode support mixed-case element names? If
so, what am I doing wrong?
3. The attributes defined for an element are added into the document tag in
reverse order compared to their definition in the DTD. I'd prefer
<!ELEMENT Class ( Comment?, (field)* ) >
<!ATTLIST Class name ID #REQUIRED >
<!ATTLIST Class extends IDREF #IMPLIED >
Produces the XML document:
<class extends="bar" name="foo">
4. Font highlighting has some problems. I've configuring my _emacs file
according to earlier posts in this list, but the text highlighing only
appears after I've used the context menu to insert a new tag. Then, the
text is only highlighted from that point *backward* in the document. When I
first load a document, no text is highlighted.
I'd be very grateful for any suggetions to fix these problems!
