I am using Emacs with Auctex. Is it possible to make files with .tikz extension to enter latex-mode automatically?
Also, what is the best practice for compiling .tikz files that will be included in another LaTeX document. I want to be able to see the effect of changes I make to the .tikz file without going back to the original document to recompile each time.
Another related question is how I can get syntax-highlighting in Emacs/Auctex for TikZ documents.
