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!

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Is there any feature that colors code for specific languages? I think \(\LaTeX\) can do it. I'll research. Thanks!

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\(\Large\LaTeX\) can probably do that but not here :P This site uses mathjax, and there are only limited functions available.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Gotcha! And I can't use mathjax in the `s, right? `\[\]` So I do it normally and in \] or \) and color it. Thank you!

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1You 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 } } ```
