I'm running into something reminiscent of a problem I was having a
while ago, which Jesper Harder put down to replace-match leaving
the point after the replacement text (see below). But this time
the problem comes up in font lock, not text replacement.
Specifically, I thout it would be nice to fontify gnugo-board-mode,
so I defined the following set of font-lock keywords:
(list '("X" . font-lock-builtin-face)
'("[^N][ ()]\\(O\\)" 1 font-lock-type-face))
"Highlighting expressions for todl mode.")
The [^N] in the second pattern is present to escape the O in "N O"
that appears at the top and the bottom of the board.
Things are working just fine until a pattern like "O O", "(O) O", or
"O (O)" appears on the board, in which case the second O is not
So my question is: what matcher should I be using to get these
additionaly strings to fontify properly?
