Hi, Adam,

The value `set-from-style' is the uninitialised "global" value that
CC Mode gives certain variables ("style variables").  That a buffer's
copy of a variable still contains that value implies that nxhtml-mode has
failed to initialise CC Mode properly.

I've downloaded that and grepped it.  There are no CC Mode initialisation
calls in php-mode.el.  For comparison, there are three such calls in
csharp-mode.el, namely:

    (c-initialize-cc-mode t)
    (c-init-language-vars csharp-mode)
    (c-common-init 'csharp-mode)

C#'s initialisation is probably correct, and could serve as a model for
PHP Mode.  In particular the call to `c-common-init' is the essential

I don't have an account on Launchpad, and I really don't want to "read
the guide" or "take a tour" (I've got bugs to fix ;-), so I won't be
contributing to the bug's progress on Launchpad.  If nxhtml-mode's
maintainer wants to contact me, I'd be happy for him/her to email me
personally or on the CC Mode mailing list at address@hidden

Thanks once again for taking the trouble to submit such a clear bug
