Emacs font locking

Emacs has great facilities to add font locking (aka syntax highlighting) to a buffer in a mode. This series of posts about font locking aims to give an introduction into the different font locking techniques in Emacs, and shares what I discovered and learned while refactoring and improving font locking in Puppet Mode.

As such, I use examples of Puppet Mode and Puppet language throughout this series. If you lack familiarity with Puppet please take a short look at the Puppet language reference first.
