A very quick public reply, and indirectly to Jean Rise and Shige Song, who
have provided me with a lot of stellar help offline. Both Jean and Shige
advised me to get MiKTeX (http://www.miktex.org: downloading it as I
speak), together with a more user-friendly, as well more compatible, text
editor, which I did yesterday in the form of
LaTeXEditor(http://www.ntu.edu.sg/home5/pg03053527/latexeditor/): it's
certainly a lot prettier looking than XEmacs! I'm pretty confident that
Mike Mitchell's original solution will work once I have everything,
together with the very helpful suggestions from Jean, Shige and Dominic.
When I (eventually!) get the chance to execute the solutions, I'll let you
know how I got on.

Thanks very much to all three of you. :)

Whereever you go and whatever you do, just remember this. No matter how
many like you, admire you, love you or adore you, the number of people
turning up to your funeral will be largely determined by local weather
conditions.
