Sorry for the short mail : 


Have also a look at this part of code mirror doc : 

Sometimes, it is useful for modes to nest—to have one mode delegate work to another mode. An example of this kind of mode is the mixed-mode HTML mode. To implement such nesting, it is usually necessary to create mode objects and copy states yourself. To create a mode object, there are CodeMirror.getMode(options, parserConfig), where the first argument is a configuration object as passed to the mode constructor function, and the second argument is a mode specification as in the mode option. To copy a state object, call CodeMirror.copyState(mode, state), where mode is the mode that created the given state.

However, is there a way to get latex-style highlighting in my cells rather than markdown (or some combination of both)?  As soon as you put an underscore in the cell, everything until the next underscore is rendered as oblique, which is not very easy to read.
