## theEric 2 years ago 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.

ah, thank you! public static void main(String args[])

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

4. thomaster

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

5. thomaster

But you can color your code manually

6. theEric

Okay, thanks!

7. thomaster

$$\color{>color<}{text}$$

8. theEric

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 } } `
