Er, no, sorry!  I said "yes" (see above), because I was thinking mainly
about the cc-mode files.  For awk-mode.el, I've got the version which was
shipped with 21.1 (4109 bytes, Nov  5  2000).  I kind of assumed without
thinking that nothing would have been done on it since then.

Could you give me a pointer towards the CVS repository, please.  I found
the address of one or two gnu CVS servers on www.gnu.org, but I don't
know the name of the module which awk-mode.el is in.  I don't know CVS
that well.  Is there an "ls" command for a CVS repository?
Alternatively, could you possibly email me a copy of the current

Are you talking about font-lock settings you've made in awk-mode.el or
just about awkward characters in some other mode?
