    http://softwaremaniacs.org/soft/highlight/ after all that searching, I found one script through safari’s web inpector, I hate it when that happens. Like when you lose a key and you find in in the most obvious place :x still, I got what I wanted :D

    That’s exactly why I use this:

    Allows me to just paste in HTML without having to escape it all (for the most part).

    Then this does the highlighting part:

    OK, this was one of these “AHA” moments – after whole annoying day with “Crayon”, I can peacefully go to sleep, and finally fix sections of code in my blog tomorrow!!!

    I think this website has moved to prism.js which is best solution. I am struggling with the use of Crayon. It’s overwhelming giving me so much options but it adds so many requests to files like monakitheme.css and then monakifont.css. Last but not least crayon.css.

    I think if you care about the performance of your website than using a wordpress plugin for syntax highlighting isn’t a good solution.

    It’s best to use a Java Script library that can be easily bundled and minified with other site resources.
