Dear Martin & Stephan: 

      Thanks very much for the replies. 

      Per your suggestions (and with further help from Sundar 
Dorai-Raj), I added the following to ".emacs": 

(global-set-key [(control tab)] "\C-xo") ;; C-tab switch buffers
(global-set-key "\C-cg" 'goto-line) ;; 'Ctrl-c g' jumps to a line number
(global-set-key "\C-cc" 'comment-region) ;; 'Ctrl-c c' comments a region
(global-set-key "\C-cr" 'replace-regexp)

      I'm not exactly certain what all this does, but it seems to have 
fixed my immediate problems.  Moreover, your suggestions also 
contributed to improving my general understanding of all this so it 
should be easier for me to fix problems like this in the future. 

      Thanks again,
      Spencer Graves
