Hello,

I have a problem using the syntax highlighting in blogengine.
if I write [code:vb]code...[/code] and I copy pasted the code from visual studio, then I get all the formating tags in my entry, and it just looks horrible?

No surprise here. The syntax highlighter is utterly terrible and difficult to use.

Because of the complains about the built in syntax highlighter I'm improving it and I'm blogging about it here:

A new version of the syntax highlighter with better recognition of code tags as well as coloring of types in C# is available here: http://www.rickardnilsson.net/post/Syntax-Highlighter-Release-02-Beta.aspx
