I'm forwarding this to the ESS-dedicated mailing list

Note however that you can get quite a bit of documentation from the 
ESS web page, http://ESS.r-project.org/
Note that the tab 'Documentation' has four subtabs,
"Manuals", "Articles", "Presentations" and "Reference Cards".

Further, on the "Getting Help" tab, there are also links to
the ESS section of the R- Wiki and the Emacs - Wiki.
