Syntax Highlighting

Update 2017-08-19: This post refers to a time when the blog was hosted in WordPress. It isn’t really applicable anymore. But it may provide some guidance to someone who happens to come across it. Since this blog is mostly about programming, there are a lot of code listings. To make those listings more easily readable, highlighting syntax in the listings is a good thing. Of all of the syntax highlighters I have tried, the SyntaxHighlighter JavaScript tool by Alex Gorbachev is the one I most prefer.
