Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

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

I keep seeing Coffescript questions that lack the javascript tag, so any posted code does not get any highlighting.

Would it be possible to get highlighting with just the Coffeescript tag without having to add (or edit in) the other?

I've set the language for syntax highlighting to the default (autodetect) so it should highlight just fine without any other language-specific tags now.
