  What Emanuel says. 

  Furthermore - If you do
  c-h (or F1) - k
  then enter any one of the keys Emanuel listed.
  You will then get full documentation of the function it invokes.

  You can roll your own functions if not satisfied with behavior,
  and even rebind any keystroke to a new function. 

  But do give emacs a chance to reveal itself in the "emacsen" way
  of doing things.

  cheers
