Been tweaking my blog template slowly over the past year, and while I’ve got plans to switch to 960.gs format, my most recent change has been how I highlight my code snippets: like everyone else on the planet, I’m now using Alex Gorbatchev’s SyntaxHighlighter in combination with Anthony Bouch’s PreCode.
Up to this point, I’ve been using CSharpFormat with Omar Shahine’s Insert Code plugin. This solution has worked well for me up to this point, but it’s the features of SyntaxHighlighter (line numbers, collapsible blocks, etc) and the quality of PreCode’s editing features that have made me switch.
Fortunately, Live Writer’s editing template is stored locally as HTML, here:
