This is the GNU Emacs FAQ, last updated on @today{}.
The FAQ is maintained as a Texinfo document, allowing us to create HTML,
Info, and TeX documents from a single source file, and is slowly but
surely being improved. Please bear with us as we improve on this
format. This FAQ is maintained as a part of GNU Emacs. If you find
any errors, or have any suggestions, please use @kbd{M-x report-emacs-bug}
