I just approved several edits from a user adding explicit syntax highlighting to questions with the tag. Apparently since this was last discussed, Google Code Prettify has added support for Dart.

I suggest it's time to follow suit and update the default syntax highlighting associated with the tag. Adding it manually to every question sounds like way too much work, even if I all I have to do is click the "Approve" button.

Been meaning to raise this request myself. =) – hjpotter92 Mar 22 '13 at 5:06
Any updates on this? Any way this can be set by tag wiki owners? – Juniper Belmont Apr 19 '13 at 7:13
Hmmm, revision 12 in "Syntax highlighting language hints" seems to suggest even explicitly adding the language hint is not supported? – Arjan Aug 24 '13 at 16:15
@Arjan Perhaps the problem is that the developers have not updated our version of Prettify to the latest? – Cody Gray Aug 25 '13 at 9:38
Okay, Cody, so then "several edits from a user adding explicit syntax highlighting to questions with the dart tag" implies people are preparing for future enhancements? (By adding <!-- language: lang-dart --> while that doesn't do anything yet?) Or did you mean they are adding the JavaScript hint instead? – Arjan Aug 25 '13 at 10:10

Coming to you live on Stack Overflow... highlighting support for [dart] and [erlang].

Shouldn't this be migrated to MSO? – Shadow Wizard Apr 1 at 20:32
@ShadowWizard Meh. Plugin support applies to other sites that have syntax highlighting enabled. And I don't care to shuffle old questions around for the sake of perfect categorization. – Adam Lear Apr 1 at 20:36
Yeah, but it's clearly about very specific tags which exist only on Stack Overflow. Anyway, meh indeed. Thanks! :) – Shadow Wizard Apr 1 at 20:40
