Hm, when I find this file

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
This is |foo| and this is |bar|.
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

neither foo or bar are fontified, although the | is in the syntax alist:

| font-latex-syntax-alist is a variable defined in `font-latex.el'.
| Its value is shown below.
| Documentation:
| List of specifiers for the syntax alist of `font-lock-defaults'.
| Value: ((40 . ".")
|  (41 . ".")
|  (36 . "\"")
|  (64 . "w")
|  (124 . "|"))

Do I need to customize anything to get the fontification you describe?

BTW, I've noticed that compiling the document prints --foo-- and
--bar--, not foo and bar printed verbatim.  To get that effect, I need
to add \MakeShortVerb{\|}.

Doesn't shortvrb add the | as short verb by default?  If so, then
LaTeX-shortvrb-chars should probably be nil anyway.
