Thanks for the answer Joseph. I just added some support for Mason
files to mumamo. It is not perfect (surprise! and there is an
indentation bug currently - those are very resistent to treatment),
but I would be glad if you or someone else that have been using
mmm-mode tested it and gave some feedback.

If you want to help with this then download the latest beta of nXhtml here:

That is a zip file which you set up by simply adding one line to .emacs, see

When you are in a Mason file turn do

  M-x mason-html-mumamo-mode

to test it. (BTW, what file extensions do Mason files normally have?)
