How do some people have code in a box? I feel like I knew and used this at one time, but I now forget. The box is shaded dark gray and text appears normal. Thanks in advance!

    `i think you mean these boxes? :P` You can create them by writing your code or text bewteen 2x ` It's the same key on your keyboard as the ~ above the tab and below the Esc button.

    Is there any feature that colors code for specific languages? I think \(\LaTeX\) can do it. I'll research. Thanks!

    \(\Large\LaTeX\) can probably do that but not here :P This site uses mathjax, and there are only limited functions available.

    But you can color your code manually

    Gotcha! And I can't use mathjax in the `s, right? `\[\]` So I do it normally and in \] or \) and color it. Thank you!

    You can also use ``` Some code will be colored, like this: ``` <html> <body> <h1>hello</h1> <script language="JavaScript"> document.write("Hello"); </script> </body> </html> ``` ``` public class Hello { public static void main(String [] args) { System.out.println("Hello"); //comment } } ```
