That's because PSGML uses its own fontification mechanism, and avoids
font-lock.  PSGML does fontification lazily, in a way, so it only
fontifies things that you change.  You can also go to a line
and hit TAB -- then it will fontify everything up to that line.

When PSGML was written, font-lock was probably not powerful enough for
proper SGML font-locking: you can change the < and > characters in
SGML, so regular expressions don't work.
