XEmacs is a branch version of Emacs. It was first called Lucid Emacs,
and was initially derived from a prerelease version of Emacs 19. In
this FAQ, we use the name ``Emacs'' only for the official version.
Emacs and XEmacs each come with Lisp packages that are lacking in the
other. The two versions have some significant differences at the Lisp
programming level. Many XEmacs features have found their way into
recent versions of Emacs, and more features can be expected in the
future, but there are still many differences between the two.
We have used some of the code in XEmacs, and would like to use other
parts, but the earlier XEmacs maintainers did not always keep track of
the authors of contributed code, which makes it impossible for the FSF
to get copyright papers signed for that code. (The FSF requires these
papers for all the code included in the Emacs release, aside from
generic C support packages that retain their separate identity and are
not integrated into the code of Emacs proper.)
programming level. Their current features are roughly comparable,
though the support for some operating systems, character sets and
specific packages might be quite different.

If you want to talk about these two versions and distinguish them,
please call them ``Emacs'' and ``XEmacs.'' To contrast ``XEmacs''
with ``GNU Emacs'' would be misleading, since XEmacs too has its
origin in the GNU Project.

``(X)Emacs'' are not wrong, but they are not very clear, so it
is better to write ``Emacs and XEmacs.''
