Yeah, I meant to add that one, but forgot during regex testing. I added it
shortly after posting to the list. Update your SVN copy. ;)

As for the copy thing, that's not my code. That's the Javascript package and
I'm not sure if it's avoidable or not. It sends a copy-to-clipboard command
(which IE prompts) and then does an alert() assuming it worked. Perhaps it
needs to check the clipboard to see if it matches. Then again, that'll
probably trigger an IE prompt too, heh.

As for GeSHi, that's server side. This plugin relies entirely on Javascript
to do the highlighting and box. It makes it much easier to be honest, plus
it works better for text readers.
