    (Blogger.com really needs to sort out syntax formatting and highlighting!)

    If I remember correctly from the test account I created on Blogger.com, aren’t people able to modify certain sections of the template, and even part of the head tag? If so, a user could easily add the same formatting script that is used right here on Sitepoint, could they not? I think it’s dp.SyntaxHighlighter.

    We can’t expect service providers to do everything, can we?! :)

    OK – have never used blogger so me being grump I guess. Then again perhaps they need to work out some smart defaults here – Dathan certainly knows enough about HTML to cope but is probably time / interest.

    I can now officialy state that dp.SyntaxHighlighter doesn’t work on blogger..

    The problem is that blogger posts ALL of your posts (even if you didn’t use the WYSIWYG editor) in a single line.. You code will thus also appear as a single line (syntax highlighter expects Newlines).. It’s just rubbish! From Blogger, that is!
