I have decided to start using the SyntaxHighlighter package here at this website, to make various code snippets a little easier to read. This package really appeals to me since it supports a number of languages, has a graceful fallback mechanism, and looks nice. Rolling out these changes will be slow, however, since I have to go through and apply some styling to all the appropriate code blocks. As always, let me know if you spot a problem with this new feature.

I just realized that a number of posts that were imported to this site from my old blog are missing backslash characters. After doing some investigation, I found out that there’s an associated WordPress bug (Ticket #21007) against the importer utility. Apparently, backslashes aren’t preserved as they should be.
I’m working to fix all of the relevant posts and comments. When I’ve completed this task, I’ll update this post.
I believe I have fixed all of the relevant posts. If you spot a problem somewhere, let me know!
