    Please make HIGHLIGHT options obvious

    In the edit form, when I click the VB button for the HIGHLIGHT tag, a popup shows, stating,
    Please enter the option for your [HIGHLIGHT] tag:
    But then I'm left in the dark on how to complete it. If a list of options is already documented, then it is not obvious where to find it.
    English is not my native language. I trust my contributions are comprehensible. Please ask for clarification if neccessary.

    That's a good suggestion, if possible. I've always pushed people towards the [CODE][/CODE] tags because they are simpler, whereas that HIGHLIGHT tag takes an extra step...sort of. If you don't choose anything, you get something.

    I already happen to to know [HIGHLIGHT=VB.NET][/HIGHLIGHT] and [HIGHLIGHT=C#][/HIGHLIGHT] highlight keywords and such. This is a significant improvement compared to just [CODE].

    If only this was obvious to all users.

    I agree. That dialogue really needs a drop down.

    BTW you can also use C, VB and SQL.
