Syntax Highlighting in WordPress

I’ve spent a little time trying to find a decent syntax highlighter for WordPress.  Based on my craigggling, Crayon seems like a solid first choice to try out.

Here’s a quick sample of a snippet of C# I grabbed from Stack Overflow while researching some options for how I’d like to architect a signal generator in C#.

Hello World

As a noob to WordPress I’m taking this opportunity to dip my toes in the water.   Although I work as a developer by day, I have too many plates spinning in the form of other projects to dig in to building a personal site from scratch.  Enter WordPress.  It’s a far cry from my previous site of a single page with a boring message. It was overflowing with good intentions though, but those don’t transmit over TCP/IP yet.  If they ever do, I’m sure all corporate firewalls will block the port by default or do some form of deep inspection in order to rip them out of all packet streams 😉
