Hi all,

(Adding Eliezer, our SMW expert)

I just made some tests on [0]. I wonder why it hasn’t been told yet, but
it works! /o/

Look at the source at, it shows a valid code sample and we didn’t need
to write escaped code.

In short, this works :)

<syntaxHighlight lang="html5">
  <some>HTML</some>
  <script>
    var hi = "world";
  </script>
</syntaxHighlight>

Maybe we should update the Gotchas, and make sure the SemanticMediaWiki
form at the code samples actually use that extension directly, instead
of us writing the syntaxHighlight tag every time.

Opinion?
