Code formatting

Since we now have a Coder's Corner, I think perhaps an update of the good ol'  ['code]['/code] function could be nice.

#include <stdio.h>

int main(){
               if(!MathIsFun) printf("Cry!");
               return 0;
}

Instead of the above, you would get something like:

#include <stdio.h>

int main(){
               if(!MathIsFun) printf("Cry!");
               return 0;
}

You would probably need to do something like. Since I only know PHP and C, I'm not sure about all the other languages, but I guess you could just make a huge list of all the names of functions in C, PHP, C++, JAVA, ..., and then make all functions one colour. So it could be used for all/most programming languages. Is this possible to implement?

Re: Code formatting

Syntax highlighting is over rated in my opinion.  Useful, but still over rated.  I don't really see the need.  If you really want to look at it with pretty colors (:P), copy and paste code from here into your favorite editor.
