I'm a long-time AUCTeX/Emacs user that switched to Vim/LaTeX-Box recently. I got everything working the way I want and grew pretty fond of Vim, but there's still one unusual thing that bothers me: Vim's syntax highlighting rules for LaTeX seem to be different and more "noisy" than those of AUCTeX/Emacs.
See the attached screenshots.
Both show the same place of the same file using Solarized color scheme, but in Vim there's a lot more colors, which I find distracting. Particularly the fact that
$ symbols that open inline math environments are colored differently than the contents of that environmnent makes editing proofs slightly annoying. Is it possible to modify Vim highlighting rules in a relatively easy way?
