Two years ago, @YiannisLazarides asked if Color coding of LaTeX3 code could be added to the syntax highlighter of TeX.SE.

With posts using LaTeX3 code becoming be more and more frequent I would like to propose to re-open the request for some way to indicate LaTeX3 code and make it more readable on the site. Could a tag be added to somehow turn on proper coloring of LaTeX3 code?

    From What is syntax highlighting and how does it work?: "... Please DO NOT ask if certain languages will be supported in the future. That is not a question we can answer because Stack Exchange does not maintain this highlighter. Visit Google Code Prettify for language support."

  • @Werner sorry if this was the wrong place for this request. I'm quite willing to send the request to the Google Code Prettify project, but I am not able to make the needed RegEx'es to capture the LaTeX3 syntax. I was hoping someone at TeX.SE had the required knowledge and skills. Nov 28 '14 at 16:55

    @MartinHeller: This is a good place to post it, but there would be nothing one can do to change this from here, as language support would have to be implemented network-wide. True, someone with the knowledge of the complete LaTeX3 language would have to write something up that could be implemented...

    Prettify has been moved to GitHub -- that is to say, I'm working on a PR :) May 19 '15 at 18:32
