      Well for a quick fix, I would make dmf.emf take a variable to determine
      which fences to match, instead of having them hardcoded. I would then
      simply remove the apostrophe from the list (in mytxt.emf), for text
      files. And add brockets ('<' and '>') for HTML files. Etc. This seems
      like a five minute hack, if you know where to create the system variable
      (which I don't). (An open question is where goto-matching-fence gets
      its fence list from.)
