The string "mml" does not occur anywhere in the Org distribution, so I have no
idea what might be causing this.  Maybe you can make a backtrace?

  I am just learning how to use org mode.  I am trying to run the latest standard distribution - org-6.05b.  I get the following error when trying to load it:

--- error message

File mode specification error: (error "Required feature `mml' was not provided")
Loading info...done

(global-font-lock-mode 1)                     ; for all buffers
