That looks interesting. I experimented by adding some markup to an
example in the distribution (ex.python.html). Adding <b> was ignored
(isn't clobbered but doesn't make text bold either). When I added <img
src="1.png"/> it broke the highlighting. Perhaps I'm doing it wrong?

The jquery-syntax examples have line numbers (added by the js). Is there
a reason not to use that functionality?
