SyntaxHighlighter for Blogspot

I found a rather interesting article today that shows how to enable Blogger accounts to use the SyntaxHighlighter library to be able to post source code online. This is just a simple test to see if I’ve configured everything correctly. Smile
So the code below is just a simple hello world snippet written in C#.

using System;

namespace Example
 public class Program
  public static void Main()
   Console.WriteLine("Hello World!");
Hopefully this works out OK.
After several revisions of this post, the syntax highlighter is now working correctly. Turns out most of the issues were actually with the WLW plug-in that I was using to generate the source code block. When I wrote the block by hand, it worked perfectly.
Update – Take 2
I got another WLW plug-in that works a lot better. I also updated the blog template to point to the hosted version of the latest version of the SyntaxHighlighter. So far everything appears to be working well.
