I recently decided it was time to teach an old dog new tricks, so i began
learning both emacs and Linux by working my way thru Markus Hoenicka's great
tutorial on installing psgml. I had been using emacs off-handedly for a few
months, then had run into a couple packages for Python and Csound that
required mucking with the _emacs file and byte-compiling .el files , so i
started surfing around for info, found scant information and an assumption
that of course everyone already knew this stuff. Anyway, Markus' tutorials
were a godsend though very daunting ( i do enjoy taking on huge projects
that periodically leave me screaming " why the hell did you even START this
So, there's the history and here's the question: (this is a very shortened
version of days of double checking and correcting my _emacs entries, trouble
shooting by commenting out sections that were entered after, etc)
        I byte-recompile-directory my site-lisp/psgml-1.2.5 directory,
compiles fine, create a test.sgml, and the psgml menus show up .
        I exit emacs, reenter, load test.sgml, and the menus DON'T showup.
        I delete the .elc files in the psgml1.2.5 directory, recompile, load
test.sgml and the menus show up.
        I exit emacs, reenter, load the test.sgml, and once again the menus
don't appear.
So. The menus only seem to load in the current session, and I have NO idea
Any help would be appreciated. Oh, i'm a single user on a win98se pc.
