Thanks.  That helped.  Sort-of lost in the jumble.

I grepped for '(defun c-mode' but no luck.  Hidden spelling?
No, hidden directory.  Got it now.  It's cc-mode, as everyone
knows.  It points back to `font-lock.el' which is what
I found to be too dense to understand.

HOWEVER, I've also discovered that the colors work fine
on a white background.  Problem is, the default background
is grey.  May I make a suggestion?  :-)

Thanks! - Bruce
