[Disclaimer: I use GNU Emacs, not XEmacs, so this advice might be

Does it work if you start xemacs with the `-q' switch, which
should cause your .emacs file to be ignored?  If so then that's
an indication that there's something in your .emacs that's
interfering with the ruby mode.

With -q, you will probably need to invoke font-lock-mode manually
with M-x font-lock-mode.
