Why not enable font lock by default?
11 years, 10 months
I've just been installing and trying out XEmacs again. Thanks for all
your work on it; it's quite a nice editor.
I wonder: why don't you set the default value of
font-lock-auto-fontify to t? It will help newbies who are just trying
XEmacs for the first time. Also, even GNU Emacs has nowadays enabled
font lock by default: whoever doesn't want it can disable it manually.
