I would like to request that any question tagged with have C# syntax highlighting applied even if the tag is not present.

95% of the questions have their code examples in C#, and RavenDB uses C# flavored linq for its indexes - so it's almost always applicable.

I am aware of how to apply syntax highlighting manually with the <!-- language: lang-cs --> tagging, but it always seems silly to edit a question just for that alone.

I've turned on automatic syntax highlighting for - this will attempt to auto-detect the language in use, which should suffice for C# code without precluding the use of other languages.

Thanks you! The only other syntax that comes into play sometimes is json (raw json, not javascript). Will that be detected as well? – Matt Johnson Jan 6 '13 at 17:28
Should be - let me know if it isn't. – Shog9 Jan 6 '13 at 17:40
