Syntax Highlighting for Mathematica on a Blog

There is the above, but I'm not terribly excited to install rogue packages.

For example on github, I share lots of Mathematica code. I see no way to highlight syntax. This may keep Wolfram down in the way of becoming a more often used and more robust programming language.

If the answer is, as I suspect, "no", perhaps a better question is "why not?"

Textmate has a bundle, which can also be used by Sublime (both are for the mac only as far as I know). However it doesn't include all the highlights I would like, like variable dependencies of functions, Modules and Blocks. It is technically open source and anyone can modify. –  lalmei Apr 30 '14 at 10:04
Sublime is actually multi-platform, and the most current fork of the bundle is here –  lalmei Apr 30 '14 at 10:22
Very cool. Thank you. –  Altoidnerd Apr 30 '14 at 10:29
Am I misreading this is only for OSX? –  Altoidnerd Apr 30 '14 at 10:31
I was mistaken at first, Sublime is actually for windows/linux and mac os x and you can use all the bundles from textmate with it. –  lalmei Apr 30 '14 at 11:02
