Hi there,

I'm learning Emacs for programming tasks and I think it's very powerful.

But, the first thing I saw migrating from Vim is that Emacs handles syntax highlighting differently, often messing up if a given source contains multiple languages (like a PHP file). I tried a plugin named nxhtml, but it seems heavy and makes Emacs' startup quite slow. I don't want to start an editor war here, just point out that Emacs seems so powerful, but doesn't have a smart syntax highlighting available out of the box.

I'm sure there's a solution to this. That's why I'm posting.
