srbaker: How so?
Hrm, gotta love TV media.
srbaker
quotemstr: i think it's seeing " as opening a string, and # causing a comment, so the rest of the line is ignored
quotemstr
That should be handled adequately by syntax tables.
"/*foo*/" in c-mode works fine.
srbaker
but does
"/* hello" */" ?

FFighter: what modes are these buffers in?
FFighter
jlf -- org mode
Could be per mode too
jlf
you want two different org buffers to have two different themes?
FFighter
different theme on buffer with org mode applied
since the twilight theme doesn't work well for org lists
but works well for the rest
:)
offby1
(Action) sniffs the air
jlf
color themes set colors for faces, so it sounds like you want to modify the handling of org faces in the twilight theme
FFighter
jlf -- can't apply themes per mode?

ColorThemeMaker is, like, at http://www.emacswiki.org/cgi-bin/wiki.pl?ColorThemeMaker

So: in Ubuntu Karmic, why does the default "emacs" package have a version number of 23.1.something, but depend on version 22 packages?
