AFAIK, `modeline' is the facename used in XEmacs. In GNU Emacs, it is

Using `mode-line' as the default face for highlighting the tags is contrary to
my intended goal: the filters simply won't be different from any information
shown in the mode-line. Hence:

- there is no highlighting by default, and
- nobody even knows that it's customizable...

I think the best choice, if you want to use an already existing face, is then
to choose `mode-line-emphasis'. At least, that one is, by default, bold, so
that one sees something different without any specific customization.

What do you think?

Best regards,
