You're right, mostly. My point was that with displayed equations (in amsmath, since core LaTeX lacks a lot in this department), AUCTeX has at least one nice thing: C-u C-c C-e. (Also, plain C-c C-e.) Both very handy. (As for preview-LaTeX; in AUCTeX, you also have folding, which looks worse, but is faster - at least I guess so, I hardly ever use it.) (C-c C-e inserts an environment, with autocompletion. With prefix argument it /changes/ the surrounding environment.) Also, Richard's post made me realize why I prefer to stay with LaTeX: I know it way better than Elisp (even though I'm making progress), and in case of troubles, I can more easily deal with them in LaTeX (though vertical positioning of things on the page - especially trying to typeset on a grid - still beats me). > Just my 2 cents. > > Andreas Best, -- Marcin Borkowski http://octd.wmi.amu.edu.pl/en/Marcin_Borkowski Faculty of Mathematics and Computer Science Adam Mickiewicz University
