I have installed AUCTeX, and put this:

(load "auctex.el" nil t t)
(load "preview-latex.el" nil t t)

in my .emacs file -- so, yes, I am using AUCTeX it would appear. I tried adding what you suggested, but my file was not run with xelatex, but with latex -- there was an error message giiven by fontspec that xetex was needed to run the file.
