This is pretty good. I have updated http://www.r-project.org/GUI to include
a link to your page.

Objet : Using XEmacs and ESS with R for MS/Windows

I've been working on a document describing the use of XEmacs and ESS with R 
for Windows users, along with configuration files that are meant to make 
things simple for Windows users. This was initially intended for my 
students, but with recent discussions of Windows (and other) editors on the 
the R-help list, I thought that I'd make the material more widely available.

The document describes how to install, configure, and use XEmacs and ESS 
with R under Windows. The configuration files divide the XEmacs windows 
into two sub-windows, one for R source files (with tabs when multiple files 
are open), the other with the R process. A customized toolbar is provided 
with buttons to send individual lines, "paragraphs," marked regions of 
text, and functions from the source window to the R process; there are 
other buttons to source the whole file silently, and to interrupt the R 
process. Menus are provided to perform operations similar to those in the 
standard Windows R GUI -- for example, to install, load, and update 
packages. In general, I've tried to provide features available in the R GUI 
and in Uwe Ligges's R plug-in for the shareware editor WinEdt. As well, 
I've attempted to make XEmacs appear more Windows-like in its behaviour, 
for example by defining standard Windows editing keys.

Comments and suggestions would be appreciated.
