And another such block for plain TeX or AmSTeX files ... Then the  
command names for the Commands menu should be better "simpdflatex"  
and "simpdftex" (the sim part comes from simulate, not from simple) –  
AUCTeX easily distinguishes between TeX and LaTeX and chooses the  
appropriate command. And since simpdftex has a few options to direct  
dvips in what it is doing you might also wish to create some more and  
specialised commands. And finally you might end up with a simpdfTeX  
sub-menu ...
