WordPress Syntax Highlighting

It simply works.

def hello
  puts "hello"

The explanation, from the FAQ.

No more pastie for this blog (but I keep using it in other contexts). is a great platform.

Update : Barry Hess had an issue with Markdown and Syntax Highlighting. I guess it doesn’t concern people like me who simply have a account.

Update : Firefox is no friend with this trick. Whenever I have a post that uses it, I edit it with Safari, works like a charm.

    Just wanted to get the warning out there. :)
