Just in case you were not already aware, you could try Tinn-R (http://www.sciviews.org/Tinn-R/) or JGR (http://rosuda.org/JGR/) or one of the editors described at this site (http://www.sciviews.org/_rgui/projects/Editors.html) as Emacs alternatives. I love Emacs and miss the speed of using Emacs keystrokes to navigate the files, but the other editors do offer easier access to command syntax help among other things. I found that I ended up crashing Emacs-ESS-R a lot on Windows XP and so now I use Tinn-R.
