highlight_string() Function For Displaying Colored PHP Syntax
PHP comes equipped with its own syntax highlighter to color your script in case you have the need to show or share your PHP scripts on your web page. For script that you put on a page intantionally for people to view or copy and paste. It only handles highlighting PHP so if you need an "all language" highlighter you can get a free open source Javascript based code syntax highlighter. But if all you need is to highlight PHP... save yourself the overhead of installing a thick Javascript syntax highlighter into your pages that could slow your pages down. This built in PHP syntax highlighting method has virtually no resource footprint when used on your pages.

Place the code to be highlighted in between the single quotes of the function. Try it out yourself on any of your PHP web pages. 

NOTE: Be sure to place the escape ( ) character before any single quotes you may happen to have in your PHP script placed into the function or it will not run.
