;; There's not much to my .emacs file - just a little mac and folding stuff.


;; .emacs ;;

;;{{{ intro

;; This is my .emacs file.  I used to have a lot of hilite-19 stuff
;; compliments of my advisor, James Lipton
;; but now I'm starting over with
;; font-lock mode - no goodies there.  He also got me hooked on 
;; html-helper-mode.

;; I now use Andrew Choi's port of Emacs 20.4 for the Macintosh, available from
;; He is the source of the Macintosh default stuff section.  
;; I don't claim to understand it.

;; You may be wondering what the funky comment symbols with the braces are.  
;; They are for folding-mode, which turns emacs into a folding editor.  
;; Folding.el is available at:
;; If you were using folding mode, you would see a list of headings 
;; which you could click on to reveal or hide the text between 
;; the funky folding comments.  For more details,
;; see folding.el or my web page:
