This is intentional. The idea is that you can write some LaTeX,
highlight it, and them hit ctrl-M to make it math. Or paste it. Or whatever.

This looks like a job for a character style. The Logical Markup module
defines a 'Code' style that renders its content as monospace. Of course,
it can be customized.
