This discussion seems to be a little misleading. The default
EMACS global bindings of Comment Start is 0 (no comments), and
Text Mode doesn't bind it. So in the default EMCAS, auto-filling
in Text mode works ok, i.e., it doesn't have the behavior EB
The problem arises if you decide to set Comment Start globablly.
Then Text Mode WOULD have a Comment Start set -- since it does
not explicitly bind it off (to 0). EB's EMACS.VARS file does
indeed set Comment Start.
Philisophical questions (about what it means to have a global
binding of Comment Start, and what a mode should specify) aside,
there is a simple fix for EB: Have Text Mode Hook bind the
variable to 0. I.e., change the EMACS.VARS entry to:
Text Mode Hook: "1M.L Auto Fill Modeâ
:I*.â â âM.L Paragraph Delimiterâ
0M.L Comment Startâ
0M.L Comment Beginâ"
