Most syntax highlighters use either shortcodes or make you add some obscure CSS classes to all
tags that you want to highlight. Even WordPress.com does that.
Introducing Code Prettify Syntax Highlighting Plugin
Code Prettify for WordPress
is a new plugin with just 31 line of code that enqueues the
Google Code Prettify
tags on the page, detects the correct language and lazy-loads the necessary syntax module, and applies the highlighting.
No shortcodes, no custom CSS classes — just magic.
New Plugin: Minit
