Is there a reason that inline-code (with
``, of course) in answers is excluded from the prettify-process?
Sometimes a piece of code is a bit too small to be blessed with its own blockquote, and so it's merely streamed inline with the rest of a paragraph, but having syntax-highlighting on it would still help to break up the different parts of the code.
(For the record, I don't think this should be included in comments — which has already been discussed here.)
Or does there already exist a way to prettify inline code? (The language of code blocks can be explicitly set with
<!-- language: ... -->; could this also be allowed for inline code?)
