This wish is open

Description

time this may take to implement: no idea
would this be useful to everyone: yes, so it would be good to have it by default
how important is this for me: very important

detailed description:
Syntax highlighting would make the edition of pages faster and easier for every user! (And especially those who make a lot of tables). So what exactly does syntax highlighting look like?

See an example:

[[code type="wiki"]]
[[div class="simple-box" style="text-align: justify; color: brown;"]]

+ Fruit Bowl!

[[module ListPages category="fruit" perPage="10" separate="false"]]
# %%title_linked%%
[[/module]]

Go [http://www.google.com to Google] or go [[[home |back home]]]

[[/div]]
[[/code]]

could render this:

[[div class="simple-box" style="text-align: justify; color: brown;"]]

+ Fruit Bowl!

[[module ListPages category="fruit" perPage="10" separate="false"]]
# %%title_linked%%
[[/module]]

Go [http://www.google.com to Google] or go [[[home |back home]]]

[[/div]]



It would be great to have this available both in the online Wikidot editor and as a plug-in to some standalone (offline) editor. (More on the latter here: http://community.wikidot.com/forum/t-60321/a-standalone-editor-for-the-wikidot-syntax). It would also be great to have the wiki format rendered this way when you click on the "view-source" button of a page.
