David makes a good point. Although google-code-prettify is not the
only client-side (javascript) solution out there. I did a write-up
about such things a little while back. While that post does link to a
number of solutions, its a rather long post mostly about why I think
javascript solutions are the better choice, even if they don't (yet)
always offer better output.
