Actually, given the amount of partly outdated, partly wrong junk you
can find for anything on the web and in hard copy, this is not
particularly persuasive.  However, Emacs comes with _integrated_
documentation (which you can also print out if necessary) that is, in
my opinion, more comprehensible, complete and up to date than the
respective integrated documentation of XEmacs.
