-<p>In Emacs, the concept of &#8220;buffers&#8221; is essential. Every file that you open
-is loaded into its own buffer. Furthermore, Emacs has several special buffers, which do
-not contain a file but are used for other things. Such special buffers usually have a
-name that starts and ends with an asterisk. For example, the buffer that Emacs shows when
-it is first started, is the so-called *scratch* buffer. In the *scratch* buffer, you can
-type text in the normal way, but text that is typed there is not saved when Emacs is
-<p>There is one other special buffer you need to know about, and that is the minibuffer.
-This buffer consists of only one line, and is always on the screen: it is the very last
-line of the Emacs window, below the status bar for the current buffer. The minibuffer is
-where Emacs shows messages for the user, and it is also the place where commands that
-require some user input are executed. For example, when you open a file, Emacs will ask
-for its name in the minibuffer.</p>
-<p>Switching from one buffer to another can be done with the command <b
-class="KEYCAP">C</b>-<b class="KEYCAP">x</b> <b class="KEYCAP">b</b>. This will prompt
-you for the name of a buffer (a buffer's name is usually the name of the file you are
-editing in it), and it gives a default choice, which is normally the buffer that you were
-in before you switched to or created the current buffer. Just hitting <span
-class="emphasis"><i class="EMPHASIS">Enter</i></span> will switch to that default
-<p>If you want to switch to another buffer than the default offered by Emacs, just type
-its name. Note that you can use so-called <b class="KEYCAP">Tab</b>-completion here: type
-the first few letters of the buffer's name and hit <b class="KEYCAP">Tab</b>; Emacs will
-then complete the name of the buffer. <b class="KEYCAP">Tab</b> completion works
-everywhere in Emacs where it makes sense.</p>
-<p>You can get a list of open buffers by hitting <b class="KEYCAP">C</b>-<b
-class="KEYCAP">x</b> <b class="KEYCAP">C</b>-<b class="KEYCAP">b</b>. This command will
-usually split the screen in two, displaying the buffer you were working in in the top
-half, and a new buffer called *Buffer List* in the bottom half. This buffer contains a
-list of all the buffers, their sizes and modes, and the files, if any, that those buffers
-are visiting (as it is called in Emacs). You can get rid of this split screen by typing
-<b class="KEYCAP">C</b>-<b class="KEYCAP">x</b> <b class="KEYCAP">1</b>.</p>
