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

Greasemonkey scripts,  userscripts (as tagged on Stack Overflow), and content-scripts all run, and are implemented in, javascript.

Yet questions tagged with , , or show as plain gray unless:

  1. They are also tagged or -- which isn't always necessary or appropriate.
  2. The poster uses the <!-- language: lang-js --> hint -- which I have yet to see someone besides myself do on those tags.

Please apply JavaScript syntax highlighting, by default, to questions tagged: , , or .

They should be tagged with javascript anyways, just retag them. (And what if I want to implement it in CoffeeScript? It's quite possible.) – Ryan O'Hara Dec 21 '12 at 15:16
@minitech: No, they should not all be tagged as javascript, as javascript often isn't a relevant part of the question. But the code would still benefit from highlighting, example, example. ... Your CoffeScript argument is a red herring. Out of 1623 applicable questions, exactly two are also tagged [CoffeScript]. Neither is harmed by JS syntax, and the prettify hints are still available if they were. – Awesome Poodles Dec 21 '12 at 15:36
Sure, it's a relevant part of the question. They are written in JavaScript. I don't see how it's possible to get more relevant than that. – Ryan O'Hara Dec 21 '12 at 15:49
@minitech, your questions are written in English, so go tag all of them with that. By your logic, you should. – Awesome Poodles Dec 21 '12 at 15:54
Okay, the whole "by your logic" hyperbole is fun sometimes, but I'm just going to leave now. – Ryan O'Hara Dec 21 '12 at 15:55
