Thanks for this suggestion, Kin. Following on from your suggestion, I
guess that rather than adding a hook to find-file-hooks, I guess I could
add it to 'sgml-html-mode-hook instead, so .php or .html files etc
initially open in sgml-html-mode, but then if a <?xml or //W3C//DTD XHTML
string was found it would then switch into xml-html-mode. So I guess, that
would go something like:

(add-hook 'sgml-html-mode-hook 'check-for-xhtml-hook t)

(defun check-for-xhtml-hook ()
  (when (save-excursion (search-forward-regexp "<[?]xml\\|//W3C//DTD XHTML" 80 
    'xml-html-mode ;; looks like this line isn't right

As you may be able to tell, though, my lisp is pretty crappy. The above
doesn't seem to work. It seems that 'xml-html-mode is not sufficient to
change the mode of the buffer. What am I doing wrong there?

Thanks for your help.

Best, Darren
