Hi, Chris. In the out-of-the-box configuration, Emacs 24 on Linux uses the standard Emacs latex-mode and Aquamacs uses AUCTeX (https://www.gnu.org/software/auctex/), and the highlighting is different between the two.

With Aquamacs, you can turn off the highlighting by customizing the variable font-latex-fontify-script and setting it to nil. That may leave the underscore and caret in a different color; if you want to change that, you can customize the face  font-latex-script-char-face.

Does that do what you want?
