Searching on "emacs macros" leads me to information on the kind
of macro you "record" with `C-x (' in order to reproduce a series of
keystrokes.

For the moment, I'm looking into Auctex as perhaps a way of leveraging
Latex for this. I've always avoided Latex because of its learning
curve, but perhaps this will be the thing that finally propels me!
