No.  BTW, a question that may sound dumb, but what exactly is AUCTeX in
technical terms?  Is it a major/minor mode (I don't think so), a set of
lisp macros with key bindings or something completely different?  The
manual lists several features of AUCTeX.  But I'm more interested to
know how AUCTeX integrates into Emacs at the technical level (without
going into details).  The same question applies to preview-latex.  Is
the latter a minor mode?

I'm looking for the complementary feature: TeX-style font locking inside
btex..etex et al. (see the bug report mentioned in my previous mail).
