Consider this question.
I provided an answer with a bash script. I did remember to add embedded Prettify language hints. The highlighting didn't get turned on. Then I found this post on Meta SE explaining changes to syntax highlighting.
So I edited the question to add the
[bash] tag. Now I'm wondering:
- Is that a good idea, adding a tag when the question doesn't explicitly limit the solution?
- Is adding a tag really necessary to turn on syntax highlighting? Remember that I've peppered my answer with language hints.
- The 'preview' of Q & A (prior to tag-change being approved) still didn't show syntax highlighting. Is that by design?
