You cannot see the fontified allout headings in emacs lisp mode
because the emacs lisp comment fontification overrides it.  If you use
allout with a text-mode file, then you'll see the fontification.  I
don't know if it's possible to see it in emacs lisp mode; perhaps by
modifying font-locking of lisp comments to exclude lines beginning
with `;;;_'.

I use the same code you do (I had also found it on emacswiki and
modified it as you did).  What I meant is that I don't know why it's
necessary to add the file local variable for allout-mode (or
alternatively, invoke font-lock-fontify-buffer) to see the
fontification using that code, so maybe the code isn't quite right.

I'm using CVS Emacs 22.0.93.1 (i686-pc-linux-gnu, GTK+ Version 2.10.6)
of 2007-02-08.

BTW, when I add ";;mode: allout" to an the Local Variables section of
an Emacs lisp file with an allout-layout specification, I still get
the expected hiding, so it puzzles me that you don't.  Did you eval
(allout-init t) before visiting the file?
