Well, that's the thing, I don't think I should have to go through hoops to read the code someone has posted. Syntax highlighting is much more convinient. A good example is php.net. I don't code in PHP often (except when I have to), but when I do, any examples are much easier to read -- especially the verbose ones. Besides, I don't always have a lot of time when I'm on Perl Monks. The extra effort required to view noob code sometimes means I don't have the time to spend on it.
