Thank you so much with English version. But I have a problem here. Your plugin only work at frontend, it do not work in backend. So, I must duplicate the wp_enqueue_scripts to admin_enqueue_scripts. I hope you understand me...

コードのハイライトを綺麗にできるプラグインは意外と探してみるとなかった。 シンタックスハイライトが簡単に自分のエディタの色と同じようにできるのが良い。 ファイル名が出力できるようにできれば尚良しなので期待を込めて☆5
