## [O] LaTeX export: underscores and the syntax package

Good afternoon all,

I spent the best part of the afternoon trying to figure out why an
org-generated .tex file wouldn’t compile with my set-up. It turns out that the
syntax’ package messes a bit with the definition of an underscore, making it
impossible to use the underscore in a \label.

Unfortunately, the LaTeX exporter uses underscores in its section labels.

Actually, it is possible to have the _ in \label: use the nounderscore’ option
with the syntax package. But you then do not get the tweaked underscore in
plain text (unless you use \_ again).

Since I’d like to keep the syntax package and the ease of using plain
underscores, I’d like to avoid the _ in labels.

Maybe I didn’t look hard enough, but I didn’t find an obvious way to change the
way org generates the labels. Would it be an option to use the same
label-generating code as AUCTeX mode? That would be very nice!

Thanks,
Peter.
