I think Ash's idea is brilliant, though I probably would show the code from within the browser, rather than importing it. Also check the user-supplied code under both the highlight_string() and highlight_file() function at php.net: http://us2.php.net/manual/en/function.highlight-string.php http://us2.php.net/manual/en/function.highlight-file.php There is also code there to provide line numbers, which would be very useful for presentations. There are some hints about how you might change the colors. Paul -- Paul M. Foster -- PHP General Mailing List (http://www.php.net/) To unsubscribe, visit: http://www.php.net/unsub.php
