Syntax Highlighting for the Built-In HTML Editor? (5 posts)

    Hi,
    I am often using the built-in html editor in wordpress and have already turned the visual editor off because it often ruins the html code.
    But what I am missing is syntax highlighting in the HTML Editor.

    I have already looked for some plugins but all I could find are plugins to display syntax highlighted code in your posts.

    Any solution?

    As no one is answering this I assume that this simple feature is not possible in WP?

    Do you even use the build-in html editor or do you use an extern editor like notepad++ and copy paste after editing into the build-in editor?

    I'm also interested in this plugin!

    I got used to post without highlighting.

    I am amazed at the amount of plugins that exist for highlighting code but none of them for the Built-In HTML Editor.

    Yes, it will be a wonderful feature if the syntax highlighting was available in the built-in html editor.
