 There are tons of sites on the Web, as well as books put out, on how to use
Emacs. This mailing list gets too much traffic for these sorts of questions
to be posed.

However, I'll answer it anyway.

To save and exit, type ctrl-x and then ctrl-c.
To save and stay in Emacs, type ctrl-x and then ctrl-s.
If you don't, Emacs will keep a file #filename#.
Emacs also makes a backup called "filename~".
