I do not know how (is the implementation done), but things work from 
Carbon Emacs to both Skim and PDFView.

For Carbon Emacs and Skim: Command-Shift-Click also takes me from a 
location in <file>.pdf (opened in Skim) to the corresponding location in

Perhaps this is in Aquamacs, Jump command is not in Carbon Emacs.

I do not know which Emacs is a better option for Macs, esp. on OS X 10.5. 
Some time ago, I couldn't get the spell checking work with Aquamacs, and 
since then have been using Carbon Emacs with no apparent problems, as of 
now. Perhaps things have changed: it would be good if someone takes up the 
task to explain us the pluses and minuses between Carbon Emacs and 
Aquamacs: both exist and are well maintained.
