That's why I suggested to use a syntax highlighting which can be adapted to the forum styles, instead of using fixed colors. This way one could have styles which show different colors for syntax highlighting, and styles which don't. Would that be sufficiently user configurable?
We already have syntax highlighting in the wiki, so you can see what it looks like - does anyone oppose this highlighting in the wiki? The wiki plugin uses GeSHi
, which is also available as a PHPBB plugin
and works just as I described in my post above. The colors are applied via CSS and can thus be adapted to the different forum styles.
