I was afraid of that; I couldn't find a direct pointer, so I just
grabbed the email address of the maintainer.  Glad you found it.

JED is nice; but it's not real AUC-TeX mode (like lots of stuff in

Demo, sure.  But if you just install it, the Emacs version of AUC-TeX
is (as you'd expect) self-documenting: you can get a synopsis of
available functions with C-h m.  Furthermore, it has a menu interface
if you are running Emacs/Mule under X Windows.

For what it's worth, if you decide to experiment, here are the
relevant portion of my .emacs:

(require 'tex-site)

and /usr/local/lib/mule/site-lisp/tex-site.el:

;;; (and I'll sign off here....  Bye for now!  Steve)

;;; tex-site.el - Site specific variables.

;; Copyright notices deleted ... -- SJT

;;; Commentary:

;; This file contains variables customized for the local site.

;; It also contains all necessary autoloads, so the user can simple
;; enable AUC TeX by putting (load "tex-site") in his .emacs file,
;; or the administrator can insert it in the site-start.el file.
;; The ideal place for this file is in the `site-lisp' directory.

;;; Code:

(defvar no-doc
  "This function is part of AUC TeX, but has not yet been loaded.
Full documentation will be available after autoloading the function."
  "Documentation for autoload functions.")

;;; Customization:
;; Copy variables you need to change from the start of `tex.el' and
;; insert them here.

;; Note that I haven't moved the AUC-TeX stuff from the old Emacs
;; directory now that I've got Mule. -- SJT
(defvar TeX-lisp-directory "/usr/lib/emacs/site-lisp/auctex/"
  "*The directory where the AUC TeX lisp files are located.")

;; Change this to point to the place where the TeX macros are stored
;; at yourt site.
(defvar TeX-macro-global
  "*Directories containing the sites TeX macro files and style files.

The directory names *must* end with a slash.")

;; You may want special options to the view command depending on the
;; style options.  Only works if parsing is enabled.

(defvar TeX-view-style '(("^a5$" "xdvi %d -paper a5")
			 ("^landscape$" "xdvi %d -paper a4r -s 4")
			 ;; The latest xdvi can show embedded postscript.
			 ;; If you don't have that, uncomment next line.

  "*List of style options and view options.

If the first element (a regular expresion) matches the name of one of
the style files, any occurrence of the string %v in a command in
TeX-command-list will be replaced with the second element.  The first
match is used, if no match is found the %v is replaced with the empty
