With `lazy-lock-mode' it works fine. I can use it all the more it has
not to be 100% reliable.

Much more out of curiosity (or to learn a little) I took the following
example from an old php mode library:

(defconst mytext-font-lock-syntactic-keywords
       (1 (11 . nil)))
       (1 (12 . nil)))

with `%' But it doesn't work this way.
