Recently I ran into the problem when Emacs tried to interpret the
Local Variables section in the "htmlized" file.  I suggested to the
author of htmlize.el to replace `Local Variables:' in the output by
its HTML equivalent `Local Variables:' that Emacs doesn't recognize.

With a new special variable HTML mode could set it to a value that
matches the Local Variables section only inside HTML comments, and such
problems of mistakenly using a Local Variables section wouldn't occur
in packages that convert files to other representations.
