	Does anybody know the right settings to cause PDF to be previewed  
with PDFView but the odd thing that must be DVI previewed with  


(require 'tex-site)
(add-hook 'TeX-mode-hook
	  (lambda ()
	    (add-to-list 'TeX-output-view-style
			 '("^pdf$" "."
			   "/Applications/PDFView.app/Contents/MacOS/gotoline.sh %n % 
	    (add-to-list 'TeX-expand-list
			 '("%(OutFullPath)" (lambda nil
					       (TeX-active-master (TeX-output-extension) t)

in my .emacs gets me PDFView, and causes my TeX-output-view-style to  

TeX-output-view-style is a variable defined in `tex.el'.
Its value is
(("^dvi$" "^xdvi$" "open-x11 %(o?)xdvi %dS %d")
("^dvi$" "^TeXniscope$" "open -a TeXniscope.app %o")
("^pdf$" "." "open %o")
("^html?$" "." "open %o")
("^pdf$" "." "/Applications/PDFView.app/Contents/MacOS/gotoline.sh %n  

But although I have TeXniscope in /Applications (and for that matter  
I have xdvi in /opt/local/bin), nothing happens when I click the dvi- 
preview button when I have my TeXing mode set to dvi rather than PDF.
