;;; Commentary:

;; New versions of this package (if they exist) may be found at:
;;  ftp://ftp.phys.ocean.dal.ca/users/rhogee/elisp/font-latex.el

;; Description:
;;  This package enhances font-lock fontification patterns for LaTeX.
;;  font-lock mode is a minor mode that causes your comments to be
;;  displayed in one face, strings in another, reserved words in another,
;;  and so on.
;;
;;  Please see the accompanying file font-latex.tex for a demo of what
;;  font-latex is supposed to do at different fontification levels.

;; Installation instructions:
;;
;;  Put this file in your emacs load-path, and byte-compile it:
;;    M-x byte-compile-file
;;  ** It runs faster when you byte-compile it! **
;;
;;  Then all you need to do is add this form to your .emacs file:
;;
;;    (if window-system
;;        (require 'font-latex))
;;
;;  There are two levels of fontification, selected by the value of the
;;  font-lock variable font-lock-maximum-decoration.  font-latex uses two
;;  levels.  There are ways documented in font-latex.el to set this
;;  differently for each mode that uses font-lock, but if you are unsure and
;;  are running on a fast enough machine, try putting this in your ~/.emacs
;;  file:
;;    (setq font-lock-maximum-decoration t)
;;  It probably best to put it before the (require 'font-latex) statement.
;;
;; Lazy-lock users:
;;
;;  lazy-lock and font-lock don't work too well together (up to Emacs 19.33
;;  and XEmacs 19.14 anyway).  font-latex uses functions to find text to
;;  fontify that may span more than one line, and this doesn't suit
;;  lazy-lock's search limits too well.
;;
;; Old hilit19 (and hilit-LaTeX) users:
;;
;;  If you are upgrading from using hilit-LaTeX.el or were using hilit19,
;;  you must disable hilit19 (at least for latex mode) in order to use
;;  font-latex.el.  Here's how:
;;  
;;  - If you don't care to use hilit19 at all, don't `load' or `require' it 
;;    in your ~/.emacs file by removing the "(require 'hilit-LaTeX)" line.
;;  - If you wish to use hilit19 everywhere but in latex mode, add the 
;;    following before your `load' or `require' hilit19:
;;
;;    (setq hilit-mode-enable-list  '(not latex-mode))
;;
;;  You can tell you using font-latex instead of hilit-LaTeX because:
;;
;;  - colours will be different 
;;  - You'll see a message like `Fontifying font-latex.tex...done' 
;;    instead of `highlighting 1: \(^\|[^\\]\)\(\\[a-zA-Z\\]+\)'
