Dear auctex maintainers,
I have been using auctex for many many years and in general find it extraordinarily useful.
I recently upgraded to mavericks on my mac, and in doing so upgraded to emacs version 24.3,
and then auctex 11.87. I do a lot of probability in latex, and hence use the vertical bar "|" character
for specifying conditional probability, i.e, things like p(a|b).
For some reason, auctex is now using the vertical bar character to delineate some sort of environment for fontification, but this is not something that I want (nor do I know what latex function would typically be delineated by "|" other than a local verbatum environment, as in \verb| ... | which I (and most people) seldom use.
I've spent some time trying to figure out how to turn off this, and restore the behavior where you ignore "|" but so far have failed.
Is there an easy way to do this?
thanks very much!
