Syntax Coloring For Tip/Trick
Code in Tip/Trick Posts should wrapped with <pre> </pre> tags to ensure formatting and colouring are correct.


For example:


<pre lang = "vb">
' Example  
Dim test As String
will produce:

' Example
Dim test As String

To specify the programming language, use lang="xxx" as follows:


<pre lang = "C++"> for Native C++ Formatting
<pre lang = "mc++"> for C++/CLI Formatting
<pre lang = "aspnet"> for ASP.NET Formatting
<pre lang = "cs"> forC# Formatting
<pre lang = "css"> for CSS Formatting
<pre lang = "F#"> for F# Formatting
<pre lang = "html"> for HTML Formatting
<pre lang = "Java"> for Java Formatting
<pre lang = "jscript"> for JavaScript Formatting
<pre lang = "asm"> for MASM/ASM Formatting
<pre lang = "msil"> for MSIL Formatting
<pre lang = "midl"> for MIDL Formatting
<pre lang = "php"> for PHP Formatting
<pre lang = "sql"> for SQL Formatting
<pre lang = "vbscript"> for VBScript Formatting
<pre lang = "xml"> for XML Formatting
If you want to enter text like <pre lang = "xml">,

  1. Check the allow HTML radio button in the Tip/Trick editor "When Pasting" option list. Use the article editor to enter text. Copy its HTML and paste here.

  2. Learn the special text for symbols like <(&-lt-; Remove the - for the symbol)
