1. How does it make it easier? I use WP-Syntax and just add wrappers
around my code that look like <pre lang="php">...</pre> and it just
works. I don't see that that is any easier to do than add [sourcecode]
wrappers. As far as implementation, you upload the plugin and activate
it. Can't get much simpler.
2. WP-Syntax generates completely valid XHTML and CSS for the code,
any text reader will read it just fine.
3. Using a server side system like GeSHi seems like a better solution
to me. For one thing, you don't have the page render the code first in
plain ugly black text and then suddenly have it jump to nice and
I gotta say that while this is an interesting approach, the server
side approach is a better one which just makes more sense. So I'll
stick to WP-Syntax.
