CodePress front page says: " CodePress is web-based source code editor
with syntax highlighting written in JavaScript that colors text in
real time while it's being typed in the browser."


Also, installation instructions at http://codepress.org/install.php
say that one should download the script and install it on a webserver.

Sounds to me like an excellent thing to be integrated with WordPress.
Both standalone and WordPress.com hosted.

I see it as a [code] button in the editor.  I press it, I get to edit
some code with CodePress (either in a popup window, or in another
textarea, or whatever), and then I click something like [Copy to post]
to get the formatted and highlighted code that I wrote into my post.

It sounds too cool to be true. But then again with WordPress... :)
