Syntax Highlighting 2.0 on Blogger

I previously blogged about adding code and displaying it nicely in your blog posts.

Back on February 3, 2009 Syntax Highlighting 2.0 was released. It is much nicer than the previous versions and the clipboard feature now works properly - It's also backward compatible or rather it upgrades the old 1.5 style to the 2.0 style without needing to touch all those old blog posts. Cool, ay?

Inspired by FaziBear, I am providing here a widget that can be used to add SH2.0 to your Blogger so you don't need to worry about the details or go through the trouble I did.

Note: If you have the old version installed via a widget or directly in your template, remove it; it's simply nolonger needed.
There is one caveat: Because everything is inlined, you won't get any updates to the remote JS and CSS code. On the otherhand, your blogs will be stable and won't be susceptible to any errors in those updates. Enjoy!
