* ... and many little changes and fixes that are listed in the detailed


Pygments is a generic syntax highlighter for general use in all kinds of

prettify source code. Highlights are:

* a wide range of common languages and markup formats is supported

* a number of output formats is available, presently HTML, LaTeX, RTF
and ANSI sequences
