Thanks Dan and Juan.

So far everything has seemed to work, though a few odds and ends occurred -- I'm going to try moving to the end of the file and see if that helps. I think I had to remove the headline, C-c C-c to get a modified option to "take" and then could re-add the headline. I might be wrong about needing to do that. I'll fiddle some more. Thanks for the #+setupfile tip!

Hi John,

I do this rotutinely without problems. I put all my #+ lines under a
heading named something like "Org config" and tagged with :noexport:. I
put it at the end of the file, where it is out of the way.

In fact I will stick my neck out and suggest that that should be the
norm for Worg files; in my opinion it is very ugly to start off a file
with a mass of technical configuration lines starting #+. The title,
author and date should be there; not most of the other stuff. Org is
about focusing on content.

I don't think that bit of LaTeX code is going to make it into your
exported output, because the heading is tagged :noexport:. The #+ lines
are fine though.
