Hi Thomas,

I think this explanation would be good to have (a bit longer, maybe) in the FAQ.

I have to agree with Torsten: I'd write the thesis directly in LaTeX,
only because of the power of AUCTeX and RefTeX (and preview, if you
have lots of plots and math).

For me, org-mode's power overwhelms what auctex brings to the show.
Not having to worry about any \begins etc not only keeps the text
cleaner, it helps me in my continuing battle against RSI!

However, I do agree that reftex is particularly useful and I do miss
some aspects of it.

The preview aspects will of course depend on the topic of the thesis!

Aloha Eric,

I have this in my emacs starter-kit and it gives me access to reftex in latex code blocks in org-babel. I've changed a few things from the code I found on the link provided, which has two methods of integrating reftex with org-mode. The link also provides suggestions for key-bindings within org-mode. Perhaps you don't have to miss reftex anymore.

I was struggling without reftex!
