First things first

Since I’m planning on using a fair bit of code snippets in my posts, I needed to know how to do syntax highlighting in a blog hosted on (i.e. when installing plugins is not an option).

Fairly easy to do, switch to the HTML editor (top right, next to “Visual”), and paste your code between [code] tags, and specify the programming language of the code snippet.

If it was Java code, for example, this is what it would look like in the HTML editor.

[code language=’java’]
…your Java code goes here…

This is what actual Java code would look like formatted using the method above.

public static void main(String[] args){
   System.out.println("Hello, World!");
