HTML Syntax highlighting in source view
|Reported by:||koto||Owned by:|

I found some really clever JS library that could make it possible to implement syntax coloring in source view for a text area.
The library is described here: http://syntaxhighlighting.blogspot.com/2006/08/real-time-syntax-highlighting.html
The code itself is small, clean, "unobtrusive" and pretty much self-documenting. The license is very liberal - we just have to mention the original author.
I will try to look on how to implement this to Xinha, but obviously I would very much recommend any help as I didn't yet work with code for Xinha core and wish to avoid any possible traps hidden.
Does anyone have any suggestions? Is this needed at all? Should it be implemented as a plugin or rather merged into the core?
