You're right. But why doesn't "perl-mode" force "font-lock-mode"? OTOH it 
does on some other installations I use, emacs and xemacs.
What's the common/best wy to achieve this for all programming modes? I saw a 
hint in "font-lock-mode" which is in fact a list of modes implying it - that 
might be easier since I don't have to edit all modes. Or should I do it in 
.emacs? And the same question for the text modes: what's the best way to 
force "auto-fill-mode" or even "maniac-mode" ;) for text, i.e. 
2fundamental-mode"?

Sorry to bother you - I've been a happy emacs user for many years but now 
it's time to get in too deep :) ... and to get rid of all the manual 
actions.

TIA
