It’s funny how often system administrators/engineers inadvertently reinvent the wheel every day. I had my own moment of “duh” today when I discovered that WordPress fully supports Alex Gorbatchev’s SyntaxHighlighter which makes embedded code in your blog look really nice (IMHO). I had researched and found other tools to present code in my posts all of which are great, but did not look as clean as SyntaxHighlighter. You can read about this “feature” here.
The SyntaxHighlighter will work with WordPress-hosted and independent WordPress blogs (as a plug-in).
I’ve modified my posts that had code in them to use the SyntaxHighlighter.
