in reply to Syntax highlighting code tags

Syntax highlighting, by default non-garish & off, would be tolerable only if everybody formats their code. Ability to use reader (as in not-an-author person) specified CSS would make the feature practical.

In any case, pushing the code through perltidy would be more desirable than this. (I know this point also has been discussed before.)
