Re: emacs syntax colorizing only comments and strings in ruby-mode

When editing Ruby code, emacs syntax highlighting is only colorizing
strings and comments! Somehow I managed to hit some keys (in emacs)
that made the colorizing work correctly earlier today, but when I
quit and restarted emacs the nice colors went away.
I've tried removing my .emacs file.
I've tried adding these to my .emacs file:
(setq font-lock-use-default-fonts t)
(setq font-lock-use-default-colors t)
(setq font-lock-maximum-decoration t)
Here are the emacs packages I have installed:
ii emacs21 21.4a-1
ii emacs21-bin-co 21.4a-1
ii emacs21-common 21.4a-1
ii emacsen-common 1.4.16
ii psgml 1.3.1-13
ii ruby-elisp 1.8.2-1
ii ruby1.8-elisp 1.8.2-7sarge1
I *think* I had the same problem with the php-elisp package before I
removed it because it wasn't highlighting anything.
Are you sure it's in ruby-mode when you're editing?
I'm no expert but I've got this in my .emacs which look like it might
;;; FONT-LOCK COLOURS
(cond ((fboundp 'global-font-lock-mode)
;; TURN ON FONT-LOCK IN ALL MODES THAT SUPPORT IT
;; MAXIMUM COLORS
(setq font-lock-maximum-decoration t)))
