       The other problem I had was that emacs was calling tex.exe with the
       option string (tex-start-options-string), which I set within 
       buffer with the Local Variables feature, in quotes ("").  This caused
       the options to be ignored by TeX.

   What value did you use?  What job was it meant to accomplish?


Here is the entire Local Variables section I am using for this file:


%Local Variables:
%mode:tex
%mode:auto-fill
%tex-command:"c:\\texmf\\miktex\\bin\\tex "
%tex-start-options-string:"--output-directory=c:\\steve\\tex 
--interaction=nonstopmode"
%tex-dvi-view-command:"c:\\texmf\\miktex\\bin\\yap.exe -1"
%End:

The version of TeX I am using accepts optional arguments in format:
--option-name=optionsetting

It (gracefully, I must say) ignores the arguments if they are quoted,
which is how Emacs was delivering them on the command line.

Perhaps I'm not supposed to be including quotes when I specify the
string, but default values are quoted, so I did mine too.
