Using vector notation means just that, enclosing the characters that
represent the key sequence inside a vector [].
I think the following would probably be better :)

(global-set-key (kbd "C-c f") 'font-lock-mode)

You need the ' in front of font-lock-mode as otherwise it is evaluated
as a variable (I think).
