    dev-handbook/tools: fix Emacs reference URL and some grammar
    1. Currently the given link of Emacs tutorial is broken and outdated.
    Emacs 19 was released way before and the FTP server is also unavailable.
    As these links get out of date rather quickly, use the online reference
    URL instead.
    2. Fix grammar, use present tense (to match "can") and remove "an".
    (e.g. ran -> run, an another -> another)

 Working with Emacs Lisp can be quite helpful if you want to go on and learn something like Common Lisp.
 Emacs Lisp has many features of Common Lisp, although it is considerably smaller (and thus easier to master).

 However, there is no need to actually know any Lisp to get started with configuring Emacs,
 as I have included a sample [.filename]#.emacs#, which should be enough to get you started.
