-Work In Progress
+A GNU Emacs major mode for editing BNF grammars.
+Currently provides basic syntax and font-locking for BNF files.
+EBNF and ABNF are in my plans for the near future.
+** Features
+1. Syntax highlighting
+** Installation
+Known to work with GNU Emacs 24.3 and later.  BNF Mode may work with
+older versions of Emacs, or with other flavors of Emacs (e.g. XEmacs)
+but this is /not/ guaranteed.  Bug reports for problems related to using
+BNF Mode with older versions of Emacs will most like not be addressed.
+The master of all the material is the Git repository at
+https://github.com/sergeyklay/bnf-mode .
+**NOTE:** The ~master~ branch will always contain the latest unstable version.
+If you wish to check older versions or formal, tagged release, please switch
+to the relevant [[https://github.com/sergeyklay/bnf-mode/tags][tag]].
+*** Using use-package
+*** Using MELPA
+*** Manual Install
+1. Download ~bnf-mode.el~
+2. Put the file in your Elisp common folder like ~$HOME/.emacs.d/lisp/~
+3. Then you can include like this:
+#+begin_src emacs-lisp
+(add-to-list 'load-path
+             (expand-file-name "lisp" user-emacs-directory))
+4. Add /either/ of the two following lines to your initialization file.
+  The first only loads BNF Mode when necessary, the 2nd always during startup
+  of GNU Emacs.
+#+begin_src emacs-lisp
+(autoload 'bnf-mode "bnf-mode" nil t)
+;; OR
+(require 'zephir-mode)
+5. Optionally byte compile ~bnf-mode.el~ for faster startup: ~M-x byte-compile~
+** Usage
+*** Interactive Commands
+| Command (For the ~M-x~ prompt.) | Description                      |
+| ~bnf-mode~                      | Switches to BNF Mode.            |
+| ~bnf-mode-version~              | Print version info for BNF Mode. |
+Any file that matches the glob ~*.bnf~ is automatically opened in ~bnf-mode~.
