emacs-21.3: description + notes

To quote the Emacs Manual:
Emacs is the extensible, customizable, self-documenting real-time display editor.
If this seems to be a bit of a mouthful, an easier explanation is Emacs is a text editor and more. At its core is an interpreter for Emacs Lisp (``elisp'', for short), a dialect of the Lisp programming language with extensions to support text editing. Some of the features of GNU Emacs include:

This package also contains leim, the Library of Emacs Input Methods, and is built with multilingual environment mule support. If you find that you're missing the X11 fonts emacs needs to display international characters try loading the intlfonts package.

To take proper advantage of Emacs 21's mule-unicode charsets, you need a Unicode font. For information on Unicode fonts for X, see http://czyborra.com/unifont/, http://openlab.ring.gr.jp/efont/ and http://www.cl.cam.ac.uk/%7Emgk25/ucs-fonts.html. http://czyborra.com/charsets/ has basic fonts for Emacs's ISO-8859 charsets.

NOTE: This version of emacs does not run properly in xwsh windows. If you want to use "emacs -nw", run it inside an xterm or "xwsh -vt100" window.
