Manually specify language for syntax highlighting

For some reason when I edit this question, and I select the relevant code portions, and hit the code formatting button, my code becomes formatted and colored. When I save my edits, however, the coloring goes away.

What am I doing wrong?


Thanks to Chris, it seems as though it's not working since my question doesn't have any language tags; it's not supposed to. Is there a way to manually tell the code formatter which language to use?

You don't have any language tags on the post. You can tell it what to use, but I can't remember the syntax. – ChrisF Apr 5 '11 at 19:51
