I understand that the
tex-mode command of Emacs is supposed to try to identify whether a file is TeX, LaTeX or some other TeX-variant when opening a .tex file, and switch automatically into the appropriate mode. But mine is not doing this despite my verifying that
tex-default-mode is set to
latex-mode. Regardless of what I have in my
document.tex file, Emacs loads tex-mode and the status line says "TeX" instead of "LaTeX". If I run
latex-mode, it goes into the right mode.
Is there anything I have to do in my
.emacs in order to have this recognize properly?
