jQuery.Syntax is an extremely fast and lightweight syntax highlighter.

jQuery.Syntax is an extremely fast and lightweight syntax highlighter. It has dynamic loading of syntax source files and integrates cleanly using CSS or modelines. It supports a large number of different programming languages.

This WordPress plugin provides syntax highlighting using jQuery.Syntax, supporting a wide range of popular languages. It supports both block elements (pre) and inline elements (code) for highlighting.

Wrap code blocks with <pre class="syntax {language}"> and </pre> where {language} is a jQuery.Syntax supported brush (http://www.oriontransfer.co.nz/software/jquery-syntax/examples).

Wrap inline code with <code class="syntax {language}"> and </code>.

If the code has already been escaped (i.e. characters such as <, >, have been converted to html entities), then add escaped into the class list: <pre class="syntax escaped {language}">. This will prevent the filter from doing this conversion automatically.
