Code display and highlight plugin for WordPress

WordPress LogoI shopped around this weekend for a WordPress plugin that not only allows me to display code snippets on my blog but is also capable of syntax highlighting – thereby allowing the posted code to look pretty. For starters, this article provides a list of the top 12 WordPress code syntax display/highlight plugins. After installing and playing around with several plugins, I eventually settled for SyntaxHighlighter Evolved, which not only offers a great looking syntax highlighting theme against a dark background but is easily configurable and supports all of the programming languages I want to display on my blog, namely Objective-C, C#, Java, and JavaScript/HTML. Good stuff.
