[Mediawiki-l] Escaping highlighting tags

Hi David,

Ok, a couple of questions.

1) Do you have the latest version of the extension? (available at
http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Extension:SyntaxHighlight_GeSHi)

2) Have you tried using the <syntaxhighlight> tag, as the extension's
documentation states that the <source> tag is deprecated.

Regards,
Daniel

I am not trying to do anything special - I just want the "easy, reliable"
way to work :) I have removed all the tags (this is what I tried at the very
beginning) and you can see that the template is not completed (the {{{ }}}}
is visible on the UseCMakeListsTemplate page). See what I mean?

Thanks,

David
