Yes, thanks for pointing that out, I will check it out. Though my main reason for wanting emacs is to use the auctex extension package for latex authoring. From reading mg's man page, it looks like auctex won't be compatible (since it's written as a Lisp extension if I'm not mistaken, and thus won't work with mg). I generally prefer vi/vim to emacs, but find that nothing matches auctex for writing latex (vim-latexsuite doesn't come close, in my experience).

In any case, thanks again. I'm finding this to be a very friendly and helpful forum.
