Syntax highlighting

Following on from Scott Hanselman's post about the SyntaxHighlighter script, here's the secret sauce I needed to get it to work.

The separate hosting is the easy bit -- the trick was getting the code I needed to run the repainting into a window.onload, and to keep Blogger from mutilating the code by use of a CDATA section.

Et voilà!

<link href='.../SyntaxHighlighter.css' rel='stylesheet' type='text/css'/>
<script src='.../shCore.js' type='text/javascript'/>
<script src='.../shBrushPython.js' type='text/javascript'/>
<script src='.../shBrushRuby.js' type='text/javascript'/>
<script type='text/javascript'>//<![CDATA[
window.onload = function () {
    dp.SyntaxHighlighter.ClipboardSwf = ".../clipboard.swf";

There is also a Scala brush for this -- but F# or Erlang will need to be hand-cranked first.

Later: hand cranking done & linked.
