In emacs, the first line can be used as a modline. For example, a file
beginning by

-*- mode: flyspell; ispell-dictionary: "english"; coding: latin-1 -*-

will select latin-1 encoding and operate spell-checking on the fly
with an english dictionary.

The following two lines

-*- mode: auto-fill; mode: hi-lock; indent-tabs-mode: nil-*-
;; Hi-lock: (("[0-9]+" (0 (quote hi-blue-b) t)))

set automatic wrapping of lines with length greater than the width of
the buffer, highlight all numbers in a blue color, and use spaces
instead of tabs.
