Hi Johan:

  I'm a GNU type of person, but we have identified XEmacs as a possible
  platform for Windows-using clients, since our clients think that it is
  more modern-looking (on windows) than GNU emacs.

   We'll see. "modern-looking" is not so important to me.

   Additionally, I have found this newsgroup *far* more helpful than the
   XEmacs newsgroup (no offense meant to the other).

  You have put the finishing nail in this piece of the endeavor!
;; code below. See the addition of a second face
(defvar newlisp-font-lock-keywords
     (,(concat "\\<\\(" newlisp-keywords "\\)\\>")
      0 'font-lock-newlisp-keywords-face)
     (,(concat "\\<\\(" newlisp-user-keywords"\\)\\>")
        0 'font-lock-newlisp-user-keywords-face))
   "List of newlisp keywords and faces")

I want to add keybinding and a menu -  I expect that will go more smoothly.
Look for Derived Mode 102 HOWTO in a week or so.

After I get the mode where I want it, then I will also provide a (hopefully)
easy-follow 'template' to add further derived modes with minimum heartburn.

Next step is to read much documentation in depth.

Thank you Johan.
Thank you Stefan.
