Solution found!

The problem was that none of my changes were taking effect. I had
redefined the variables in sgml-mode, but they were being ignored.
Nothing was happening.

Then while working on the command-line, trying to debug the .emacs
init file, I found the problem: I had byte-compiled my .emacs file
previously, but had not byte-compiled the .emacs file after I had
changed and saved it. So Emacs was loading the older .emacs.elc file
instead of the newer .emacs file.

Solution was simple: byte-compile the new .emacs file and everything
works. (*sigh*) How did I miss this one? Must have been the Sobig
virus working on my brain. :)
