We've had quite a few questions involving code on the site now:
I think it'd be helpful to enable syntax highlighting here (using language hints, where
<!-- language: lang-example --> comments are placed before the code block). Personally, I find it much easier to read code blocks with syntax highlighting once they begin to pass trivial sizes (even 5 or 6 lines can benefit from some syntax highlighting), so I imagine many posts will benefit here.
Would this be useful to others, and should it be enabled here? If there's enough support, I'll let the community managers know that we're interested, but I see little point in enabling it if the majority of people aren't going to use it.
