Argh! Something new to learn. Dunno how to modify Wiki
pages. The problem with the emacs Wiki page, is that
it is written for someone for already knows how to use
emacs. It's written in cookbook fashion (for someone
who already knows how to cook), and not step-by-step
fashion. This is great in general, I think. But it's
bad for me. 

Here's an example. I put this code in my .emacs file:

 (defface extra-whitespace-face
   '((t (:background "pale green")))
   "Used for tabs and such.")

 (defvar my-extra-keywords
   '(("\t" . 'extra-whitespace-face)))

 (add-hook 'emacs-lisp-mode-hook
	   (lambda () 
	     (font-lock-add-keywords nil my-extra-keywords)))

 (add-hook 'c-mode-hook
	   (lambda () 
	     (font-lock-add-keywords nil my-extra-keywords)))

And, it didn't work. No error messages or anything, so
I have no clue what is wrong.

Woohoo! Another tip! This will save me at least 5
minutes! Thanks.
