[Haskell-cafe] mediawiki syntax highlighting plugins

i've noted that the new haskellwiki has dropped syntax highlighting
support for haskell code fragments. while i think that full highlighting
might be overkill, at least different color markup of code and comments
would certainly be nice.

investigating the options for syntax highlighting in mediawiki i found
the following two extensions using GNU enscript:


where the second is an alteration of the first, with haskell support
already added.

an alternative would be geshi (http://qbnz.com/highlighter/) for which a
mediawiki plugin also exists
(http://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/GeSHiHighlight), but it says on the
geshi site "GeSHi supports PHP5 and Windows". and i'm not clear whether
they mean it _also_ supports those options or exclusively.

it would be cool if one of the wiki maintainers could look into this
matter and possibly install/setup one of the above extensions.

thank you,

Johannes Ahlmann
