Hi there,

I am a rookie here.
I am using Emacs for Mac OSX to edit some latex files. And when I click
"syntax highlight" from the menu, Emacs
gives me a really fancy kind of highlighting scheme.

For example, if you input "x^y", the y will be put in a smaller font
and put on the top of x, which is nice. But it slows down the text
input speed.
I have to wait a while for my words to show up!

Another annoying thing. I don't know why. some time if I finish a \begin{align} environment, I can not input "" sign. It shows in the minibuffer: "math mode because of align, Use C_q to force a dollar
sign"! Heck, what's wrong with it???

I tried "M_x text-mode", it 's way faster. I just really don't need
all those fancy gadgets. What i need is a very very simple syntax
hightlighting scheme that runs functionally for editing tex file.
Like what i have used before in Unix.


Would you please guide me to set up my Emacs w/Auctex so that it'll be effectively hightlighted, yet there won't be too much going on??

many many thanks,

earnest,
Jim
