Under Emacs 24.3 and Auctex, the sub/superscript fontification is occurring outside math modes. This appears in either Beamer or normal LaTeX docs.
Per this question, I've included the following lines in my
;; disable annoying fontification in latex
(setq font-latex-fontify-script nil)
However, this only appears to fix the behavior for a subset of letters for the subscript, and not at all for the superscript. Something like
_p is fine. But
_v gets set as the subscript. Both
^p get set as superscripts.
Has anyone else run into this problem? This is AucTeX 11.86 and Emacs 24.3, running on ubuntu 12.04.
