Source Code highlighting in your blog – SyntaxHighlighter

I was looking for a way to make my code easier to read in the blog and I found SyntaxHighlighter as it was being used in the XSnippets website.

It is already built into wordpress which is hosting my blog and the format is simple.

Originally I was just italicizing my code

function x$(idTag){
     idTag=idTag.replace(/:/gi, “\\:”);
     return($(“#”+idTag));
}

but if you wrap it with the appropriate code for WordPress

gives us a much easier on the eye:

function x$(idTag){
	idTag=idTag.replace(/:/gi, "\\:");
	return($("#"+idTag));
}

It also gives you the ability to copy and view – LOVE IT !
Productive !
