    Plugin works like a charm :-) And I will grant it four stars as soon as it supports the new visual mode rich text editor introduced with JIRA 7.2 (right now, code blocks get converted into a table!!!!)

    Sorry, nothing I can fix at the moment. Rich Text Editor is breaking any custom developed macros like JIRA Syntax Highlighter. Please find details and vote here. https://ecosystem.atlassian.net/browse/JRTE-25

    JIRA's {code} block macro also supports most of the languages. Can you please give me the clear differences between JIRA's {code} block macro and your's. Could you please let me know, whether this JIRA syntax Highlighter supports Ada language or not?

    Very useful plugin. 1) Is there a way to add this info to the help-screen WikiRendererHelpAction.jspa ? That would be useful for informing users of this {code:<language>} possibility. 2) Is an extension for JSON possible? Thanks.
