Hi to the WEBSITE people,

just a thought but has it been suggested that
 the CODE wrapper be able to highlight and color code.

Much like some java script I have for making JavaScript look pretty
 and HIGHLIGHTING ERRORS.!

What's the right word for doing that.?


Anyway, It may help people spot errors in their code submissions.

It may also encourage people to use the CODE wrappers.


Any thoughts.?

Coloring like what you're talking about is done on GitHub and Stack Exchange, not so much the error highlighting, though it can make some syntax errors more obvious.

I doubt it would encourage people to use code tags.

You may be right, but it would look pretty.!
and your right, Git and such have a very feature rich viewer.
To much for this site I suspect, but aspects could work.

I wonder if the java viewer I have will do it on C.

The web editor CREATE has some of those features already.
They seem to integrate closely with the regular IDE teams as some of the web features have migrated to the regular IDE.

Maybe worth a mention on that side of the fence (so to speak)

It may not be the answer you were looking for but its the one I am giving based on either experience, educated guess, google or the fact that you gave nothing to go with in the first place so I used my wonky crystal ball.
