I tested the result using latex, xelatex and biber. Everything went well. 

The only issue remaining is that now that I'm using xelatex, my output defaults 
to PDF rather than DVI, and so AUCTeX needs to be told to make xpdf rather than 
its default viewer. I searched on line and fiddled with some code in my .emacs 
file, but so far no luck.
