"Code highlighting the easy way"
Bootstrap 3.1.0 Snippet by mrmccormack

It seemed complicated to work with TB's doc.css (that's what they use on their site). Google's "prettify", "highlight.js" and a few others seemed complicated and required many files. </p> <p> Consider this example, taken from Twitter Bootstrap Docs. We will use a Github Gist to embed the same code and color it.<br> Ref: <a href="http://getbootstrap.com/getting-started/#template" target="_blank">http://getbootstrap.com/getting-started/#template</a> </p> </div><!--/.col--> </div> <!--/.row--> <div class="row"> <h1 class="page-header"> Basic template </h1> <p class="lead"> Start with this basic HTML template, or modify these examples.
