This sounds like very similar to a problem reported in SAS mode a few
weeks ago.  Please can you send an example file and state what you
expect to be font locked, and how it appears for you.  (I ask for these
so that we can debug it!)

Please also tell us what version of ESS and what version Emacs you use.

Thanks, Stephen
