It surprises me that you say that, and with all do respect, that I found
a mail with the subject line.  Doing, C-c C-c in AUCTeX has always
seemed WYSIWYG-enough for me ... especially with a quick letter or some
such.  The confidence, bang, ``It's gonna look perfect,'' not the, ``Hm,
what's the word processor gonna produce??''

You really want GNU Emacs to produce files replete with the metadata
that screws that very same file up at some later date?  The day that
happened to me fifteen years ago was that last time I ever used
Microsoft Word---or any other `word processor'.
