Hi -

I upgraded to OS X 10.3 (Panther) and installed the carbon build of GNU
Emacs from

When I load it, attempting to initialize ESS in the normal way in my .emacs
-- (load "~/elisp/ess-5.1.24/lisp/ess-site") -- gives the following error:

An error has occurred while loading `/Users/kjhealy/.emacs':

Invalid read syntax: ?

Which is sadly not very informative to me :(

Is this a known problem? Any ideas how to fix it?
