      ":set syntax=…" (which, if included, should be "setlocal syntax=…"
      instead) should not be necessary if your vimrc includes "syntax on" or
      "syntax enable"; similarly, "runtime! ftplugin/…" should not be
      necessary if it includes _either_ "filetype plugin on" or "syntax on"
      (or both).

      Assuming the filename is enough to detect the filetype:

      :au BufRead,BufNewFile *.foobar setf foo.bar " set it only if not yet set
      :au BufRead,BufNewFile *.foobar set filetype=foo.bar " set it even if
      already set.

      in a file named one of
      - on Unix-like
      - on Windows
      - on either

      Most of these directories and all of these files are absent by default
      in a new Vim installation. Create them if necessary.

      This will source the plugins in the order shown (first foo.vim, then
      bar.vim). In case of conflicting settings, e.g. matchit's b:match_words,
      then the last one wins. If the correct value for both HTML and
      handlebars is set in the handlebars ftplugin, then the dotted filename
      should be html.handlebars and not the opposite.

      :help 'filetype'
      :help new-filetype
