"My Syntax Highlighter PRO" is a premium WordPress plugin that gives you the ability to easily and safely embed a syntax-highlighted source code within pages and posts on your WordPress website without losing its formatting. This is a "PRO" version of the plugin "My Syntax Highlighter". More features, more power.

This plugin supports 154 programming languages, 125 shortcodes and 56 themes. The syntax highlighting feature is implemented using the [CodeMirror](https://codemirror.net/) library.

Syntax highlighting is a feature that displays source code, in different colours and fonts according to the category of terms. Syntax highlighting is one strategy to improve the readability and context of the text; especially for code that spans several pages. The reader can easily ignore large sections of comments or code, depending on what they are looking for.

This plugin also uses standalone Shortcode-Processor to prevent WordPress from converting newlines to HTML paragraphs, replacing apostrophes with typographic quotes and so on.

This plugin is just plug and play, no tedious configurations or hacks, just install, enable and start using your new shortcodes.
