No, Stephen, this won't work! Well, it /will/ work as long as the  
source is free of errors, but when XeTeX or XeLaTeX hit such an  
error, then they'll prompt for some input. Although it's possible to  
"input" something into AUCTeX's *output* buffer, this will /not/ be  
sent to XeTeX or XeLaTeX. The process will get stuck ...

For human generated Xe(La)TeX files you'll need the - 
interaction=nonstopmode\input{<file name>.tex} option!

Actually I am working with AUCTeX 11.84 since recently and I have the  
feeling that it's particularly this version that does /not/ work. How  
is the -interaction=nonstopmode working on the command line for you?  
One idea I had is to split the compound and to make it actually

	xe(la)tex -interaction=nonstopmode "<file name>"

but I couldn't try it yet ...



For some reason, this fortune reminds everyone of Marvin Zelkowitz.
