Murray,

Just last night I ran across a customization variable named "show-trailing-whitespace" in chapter 38 of the GNU Emacs Lisp Reference Manual.
It seems to be new with Emacs-21.

whitespace characters at the end of a nonblank line show up in a
different color, so I can easily notice (and remove) these stray marks
(which can easily be done with a macro, but thats not the point).

  I don't need to setup a syntax table for something so trivial, do I?
Is there a good example minor mode to help learn some of this stuff?
