I'm using the xml-mode that I downloaded from your site in December 1997.
And, yes, it does read 'XML' in the mode bar. I'll try some additional
testing to see if I can narrow down the problem. Is there some other test I
can run to be sure I've got the entire xml- mode installed properly? I had
to do some manual hacking to install on WinNT, maybe I messed up somewhere.
I've never gotten it to work correctly, but sometimes I get the top-level
element names in mixed case, and the content model all folded to lower case.
So, I can add mixed case elements at the top level, but there are no "valid"
sub-elements because the content model has all tags in lower case. In
another test, everything was lower case.

Yes, it will eventually highlight the entire document, once I've made an
addition to the end of the document.
