This is called syntactic fontification -- as opposed to keyword
fontification.

You can either turn of syntactic fontification in your mode (this will
also inhibit font locking of comments) or modify the syntax table of
the mode.

I think the cleanest way is to define new faces for the mode with
`defface'.
