In this question, I have marked portion of html code and below another one. But the first code line is not being highlighted. Why are they behaving different?

Your first HTML tag is denoted with backticks (`):

`<meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=8" />`

Code tagged with backticks is never highlighted by prettify; only code blocks indented with four spaces per line are highlighted:

    <meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=EmulateIE7; IE=EmulateIE9" />

And for the record, your post isn't as well-formatted as it can be. Paragraphs need to be separated with two line breaks, for one thing. It's also not a good idea to mix HTML with Markdown as it can get frustrating for others to edit. Consider revisiting http://stackoverflow.com/editing-help and http://daringfireball.net/projects/markdown/syntax for help with formatting your posts properly.
