Well, I'm in engineering, we do have some math, too :-) I used the tex
lexer for both Context and LaTeX before and the formulas usually stood
out enough. I experimented a bit with highlighting the current
environment completely, like the current latex lexer does for $...$,
and I find it harder to read because commands aren't highlighted
What would you think about styling just the starting/ending blocks differently?
