Reading the AUCTeX manual I see that it is possible to add expressions to those one wants to highlight in a
.tex file. There are also many specific suggestions around for how to add specific commands to the list
font-latex-keywords. Now, coming from another editor (ST3) where it seems that the default is to highlight anything starting with
\, I wonder whether there's any reason not to do this in Emacs and, if not, exactly how to do it.
(From what I understand, you can't use a regex to specify a list of keywords, is that right?)
