polymode

When you are using R, you may find yourself editing R code that has embedded C/C++, HTML or LaTeX. Or you may simply be reading a help page. Emacs, generally, has one major mode per buffer. So, the syntax highlighting will not be what the user intended. polymode was developed as a helper mode for ESS to fix this. With polymode, R code in the help pages, as well as embedded code from another language, is syntax highlighted correctly.
