it would be nice for people on the NB wiki to be able to highlight
source code in their documentation of their projects. There are several
possibilities to do this with one of the most common ones being the
SyntaxHighlight_GeSHi extension for MediaWiki which uses GeSHi as the
backend highlighting library.

GeSHi itself supports about 180 different languages including C, C++,
Java, Perl, PHP, Python, HTML, Whitespace, Brainfuck, Erlang, F#, C#,
and many many more.

The plugin is being in active use by several big pages including the
Wikipedia and other Wikimedia projects as well as many content
management systems like Joomla and Typo3. Other software known to
include GeSHi or supporting its use is WordPress, phpBB2&3 and many
pastebins you see on the web.

GeSHi itself is very secure: There have only been 3 CVEs in 5 years,
where one was unexploitable in real world scenarios.

I'm looking forward to your input on this.
