Are there any downsides?
In this question (edit: and this question and increasingly many others) I have added a short python script as a code block (all lines indented by four spaces). In stackoverflow, adding the Tag
python turns on the highlighting appropriate for python.
Is there a way to do that here - it looks so drab now!
update: per comments below, it looks like language sensitive highlighting for code blocks may not be activated here. If not, is there any interest in turning it on?
four spaces turns on code blocks so those are available, it's just that language-sensitive highlighing is not available, so it's just drab gray.
See here as a random example just for comparison.
