1. SyntaxHighlighter Evolved

This is the plugin i am using and many other top blogs like Smashing Magazine are using to highlight codes in posts. It allows you to easily post syntax-highlighted code to your site without having to escape the code or anything. It uses the SyntaxHighlighter JavaScript package by Alex Gorbatchev to do the highlighting and supports all of the package’s parameters via shortcode attributes.

    This list caught my eye because I recently found a need for such a plugin and after trying out a few, I settled on SyntaxHighlighter Evolved and wrote my own post about it, so I was glad to see at number 1. For me, it presents the code in the best way possible and doesn't have some coding quirks like some of the others do (like Google SyntaxHighlighter)
