.emacs file for Unix.

Hello everyone,

I have been using S+ through ESS and Emacs under Window NT for quite some
time.  I am now moving to a Unix platform.  Following Rich Heiberger's
(thanks Rich) instructions I have used S-elswhere to access S+ on the Unix
platform; it works fairly well except for getting help from S+.  We have a
Unix 64-bit version of S+ for which there is no Java support for the
moment; the help is provided through the Lynx system I think.  For reasons
unknown to me the help gets back to the ESS buffer in a way that is
extremely hard to read, control characters are mixed in with the text

At this moment I am under pressure to produce statistical analyses and I
don't have time to cleanup my own NT ".emacs" file so it would work under
Unix.  As Emacs, 20.7,   is installed on the Unix machine I was wondering
if anyone had a ".emacs" file, setting up reasonnable defaults for Emacs
and ESS of course, they would share.

Thank you very much,
