I'm trying to get syntax highlighting with org-mode source blocks using a custom language mode for editing JavaScript. I use js2-mode with a bunch of minor modes, rather than js-mode, which is what org-mode uses by default.

I was able to get org-mode to use js2-mode for editing code by customizing org-src-lang-modes, where I set the Cons-cell for javacript to js2.

However, syntax highlighting has stopped working in the org buffer (it works fine in the source buffer). This is with org-src-fontify-natively set to true, which the documentation suggests is the only requirement.

Is there anything I'm missing?
