Also, TeXniscope has a nice implementation of scr-ltx which works out  
of the box with (enhanced) carbon emacs. With C-c C-j you jump from a  
spot in the source file to the corresponding page in the dvi file.  
Command click on a spot in the dvi file brings the cursor to the  
corresponding line in the source file. If you want to use the C-c C-j  
command in emacs you need to correct a small glitch in txs-search.el.  
This lisp script is located in the Resources directory of the  
TeXniscope.app bundle. Replace the lines:

(defcustom txs-path "/Users/mgubi/Build/TeXniscope.app"
   "*Path to the TeXniscope application."
   :type '(choice (const "/Users/mgubi/Build/TeXniscope.app") file)
   :group 'txs-search)


(defcustom txs-path "/Applications/TeXniscope.app"
   "*Path to the TeXniscope application."
   :type '(choice (const "/Applications/TeXniscope.app") file)
   :group 'txs-search)

(or point to wherever TeXniscope resides on your drive) save and follow  
the installation guide from TeXniscope's help menu. Massimiliano  
promised to include this "patch" in the next version of TeXniscope  
which is to be released in a week or two.



P.S. I read the list as a digest and not very diligently... Sorry if  
this has been pointed out already.
