Suppose I have an elisp file and I change to org-mode by hitting "M-x org-mode". The code does not get highlighted because it is not embedded within org-babel construct. If I have a programming language file with some org-mode heading commands in it, and change to org-mode, it would be neat to have language highlighting available. > > I have also seen that within code blocks, the background is uses a colour that is > > different from the background colour of the buffer.
