comment Longtable vs. supertabular: Which is right for which job?
I don't mind that much, as long as they stay the same width in that page. The document I'm working on is already pre-specified to be as ugly as possible, so I don't think those reading it will mind either.

revised RefTeX won't find my .bib file in local library tree
Problem had nothing to do with biblatex-biber, so the title was improved to reflect that. Also added system info; it might be useful.

comment RefTeX won't find my .bib file in local library tree
@N.N., I take it back: I had a typo and that's why it didn't work. Would you post it as an answer so I can mark it? Without that line, RefTeX would only recognize .bib files in the same directory as the .tex file. Also, once it failed to work once, it would keep failing to work unless I restarted Emacs. Reopening the buffer after setting the correct .bib file did not change that it didn't work.

comment RefTeX won't find my .bib file in local library tree
Something did help, but I can't reproduce it. There seems to be an auxiliary file (not sure which one) that when present, allows RefTeX to work. Mucking around, I got it to recognize a samplebib.bib in the same directory; however, it wouldn't redirect to the master_bib.bib in the local Library, and even when the samplebib was renamed, it still referred to the old references it had. I'll try to replicate it and check back in with results.

@N.N., adding the default bibliography to my .emacs did not help either.

@JosephWright, I tried \bibliography but RefTeX still does not find the .bib file. Wouldn't \bibliographystyle be BibTex syntax?

comment Encoding error when changing from LaTeX to XeTeX engine in Emacs AucTeX
I've taken it out! Should I ask another question as to why it is wrong or can I ask here in the comment section?

comment Encoding error when changing from LaTeX to XeTeX engine in Emacs AucTeX
Thanks for clearing this up. I removed the inputenc package and now it works as I expected it to. I also saw in one of the log files that XeTeX begs the user not to use inputenc. On another note, would specifying \usepackage{lmodern} be redundant when using fonstpec?

comment Typeset directly in Spanish
@DavidCarlisle, I have an awkward setup so I didn't copy paste them. Instead I retyped it. Troubleshooting an unrelated error yesterday I learned that my system is configured to UTF-8, which would explain why the code works for me, but when I change to Latin-1 it fails.

Strangely enough, the original code works fine for me but if I change to \usepackage[latin1]{inputenc} I get a Missing $ inserted`error.

comment What is your favorite Emacs and/or AUCTeX command/trick?
@N.N. Done and done! Let me know if I should go into more detail or if the explanation reads clearly enough.
