## [AUCTeX-devel] Syntax detection problem

```Dear developers

```
I've noticed a possible problem with the way that AUCTeX's syntax detection/highlighting works on a LaTeX document. Take the following snippet of code:
```
\verb=C:\=

```
by which, of course, I intend to insert 'C:\' into a document. AUCTeX/Emacs fails to recognize the end of the \verb environment, so the rest of the document gets flooded with brown text. This only happens when final character is a backslash, so it seems that the identification of a command (\=) is somehow interfering with detection of the end of the \verb environment.
```
best regards,
