How hard would it be to add VDF/Material/QC/etc. support? I'm sure the Notepad++ profiles could be re-engineered. --TomEdwards 12:15, 17 January 2009 (UTC)

This was something on the to do list, but isn't very high priority at the moment because most of the code blocks on the VDC (other than C++) are relatively short and simple. The syntax is relatively straightforward, however. --JeffLane 20:07, 17 January 2009 (UTC)

Background colour

Source code elements need backgrounds and borders to stand out from the words around them: just take a look at Threads. --TomEdwards 19:09, 21 January 2009 (UTC)

Helpful tag

I think the <source> tag is useful because it prevents you from having to use <span> tags everywhere. --Nathaniel 02:54, 14 October 2010 (UTC)
