Blog engine, Code and firefox

DasBlog have a nice feature: since it uses the FreeTextBox component to allow editing of the blog, it also has a "Insert Code" button. However, this component is less then satisfactory, the main problems being:
  • Lack of C++ language support (as you can see for yesterday's post: highlight is for C#)
  • It does not work on Firefox (mozilla browsers do not have the showModalDialog funtion)
  • It does not mantain indentation (very bad!)
  • I wish to separate code and free text, maybe enclosing code in a nice box
So, I think I am going to implement something myself, that supports at least C++ (maybe /CLI)! Another pet project for my list =)
