Not a good synonym at all.

"Prettify" can act as a verb or concept which is unrelated to any product. I was able to easily find questions under where are unrelated to any library. If somebody has managed to make the tag wiki reference a specific product, I think that is in error.

Would it be worthwhile editing the prettify tag description to make it less product specific. Right now the verbiage about a JS and a CSS file seems overly specific unless referring to prettify.{js,css}. I could re-tag google-code-prettify specific questions, and edit it to be a more general discussion of syntax-highlighting and/or auto-formatting. –  Mike Samuel Sep 26 '12 at 15:57
