See http://www.emacswiki.org/cgi-bin/wiki.pl?CategoryCode -- it has
the following section:

How to start writing a new major mode:

  * GenericMode -- for very simple modes including font-locking and comments
  * DerivedMode -- for new modes very similar to existing modes
  * SampleMode -- complete elisp example for a real major mode
  * ModeTutorial -- a tutorial for mode writers
