Over the current year, I have written more code in VB.NET than C#. Hence, my code samples were obviously Visual Basic.
I have noticed some bad syntax highlight with this language, particularly when inserting comments in code sample, (otherwise the highlight is great), which seems to be parsed as a string of text by the code sample parser or syntax highlighter of SO, call it what you want, I don't actually know the exact technical term for this.
While I understand that SO cannot offer syntax highlight for every single existing programming languages, I am wondering whether this would be doable to provide some sort of syntax highlighter such as ones provided in Notepad++, for example.
What I mean is that one could choose, while editing his/her question/answer, the language highlighting that suits best for the code sample he/she provides. Indeed, C# would be the default.
That said, would syntax highlighting compatible with other languages than C# be worthy?
