ForumColorizer: Free Tool to Colorize posts for www.asp.net


So what exactly is this?

Well, the asp.net forums allow certain "markup keywords" to colorize the posts. This is very useful when posting code snippets since it allows reading the code much more clearly instead of just plain text.
This tool will generate the correct markup so the post looks as it would in Visual Studio (with some differences like strings will be gray and numbers red).
If you develop in ASP.NET and have never been in http://www.asp.net, I recommend you visit this site where you will find a lot of answers to the typical problems you might face.


This is how a post in www.asp.net looks like when using this tool:
