What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

That question is tagged both and , so the prettifier doesn't know what to do and chooses some default colorization that doesn't work well here. See this question for more information.

You can add a magic comment to specify the language before a code block. (This didn't exist back when that particular answer was posted.) You need one such comment before each code block for which you want to select a different language for highlighting.

<!--language: lang-js-->


(I thought this was supposed to work with <!--language: javascript--> too, but it doesn't. Why?)

You can forcing the language that code block is interpreted as, see this post, which should fix this.

To force JavaScript, we can use <!-- language: lang-js --> before the code block.

That said, the example question is tagged already, so it should automatically be doing this, but maybe the other tags were getting in the way...
