Often times I'll have an e-mail message with some code in it, or code

tell Emacs to (use A-mode instead of B-mode)?

The simplest way to do this is to use 'clone-indirect-buffer' (C-x 4 c)
and use A-mode in the original buffer and B-mode in the cloned buffer.
Put the two buffers in adjacent windows and switch between them when you
want the features of the other mode.  See the Info node (emacs)Indirect

Wow, that is really cool!  Especially if you narrow each buffer to show just
the parts relevant to that mode.
