There are two different ways to specify "local variables" to be used in a buffer visiting a file:

Either, on the first line, between "-*-" separators a set of variable:value pairs, separated with semicolon (and whitespace).

Or, near the end of the file, on several lines, after a line containing "Local Variables:" up to a line containing "End:", each line containing a variable:value pair. Prefixes and suffixes identical to those on the "Local Variables:" and "End:" line are automatically stripped.
