I have been searching around for a way to highlight the code in my posts to make it easier for people who visit my site to differentiate between the text and the code. At first I was using the <blockquote> tag with some CSS to make things look the way I wanted to, but then I stumbled upon a great piece of JavaScript offered by Google that goes that extra step to make your code snippets look awesome.

It called a Syntax Highlighter and you can download it by going to http://code.google.com/p/syntaxhighlighter/.
