Set the variable global-font-lock-mode to t -- put
(setq global-font-lock-mode t)
in your ~/.emacs. To have it take effect immediately put the cursor
after the second parenthesis and type C-x C-e to evaluate the form.
There is an "easier" way to change settings like this through the
"customize" facility, but that's point and click so it's far more
tedious to explain.
