I had considered this, but didn't want to invest so much time.  It's also more
complicated in the xml case, because xml-mode is only the default for those,
unless a more specialized mode comes from the finame.

Things like echo "<html>..."?  You'd have to make sure that all preceding
non-whitespace is contained in matching <...>, nested for comments.  Besides
80 is far too short, even without a comment, and watch out for case:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="ISO-8859-15"?>
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN"

Since html is currently the only candidate, maybe this could replace my file
name checking.  Be sure to put the special cases first in the alist.  I'm done
with my changes, so give it a shot!
