Thanks.  Basically, the problem is here

(defun css-mode()
  ; Setting up syntax table
  (modify-syntax-entry ?* ". 23")
  (modify-syntax-entry ?/ ". 14")

This will modify the syntax-table of the current buffer, which can be
any syntax table.  You can, for example, in *scratch* do M-x css-mode
and you will get C-like comments in all your Elisp buffers.  Weird.

Maybe this stuff works in a mmm-like environment where a buffer may have
multiple major modes.  As it stands, the code above is highly dangerous
and should be either fixed (by making a new syntax table) or removed.

In any case it was useful to do these investigations.  Thank you for the
