The most "usable" online code highlighter service, supports a LOT of different languages including SQL, scripts, ancient language (*asm) and newest (.NET)

A very easy to use website, supports a lot of languages, including PHP, ASP, VB.NET, C#, Ruby and "robots.txt" <--LOL
CodeColor by Asp.NET Resources
It has not many languages to work with and I don't like the idea to have a popoup window with the final highlighted...
Here is a simple working example explaining how to use ShowModalDialog and asp.net with Visual Studio 2005.
Start with default.aspx, which has a single button. Once clicked, it will popup a modal window which will show a single button labeled "Close me!".
The postback will redirect the user to a new page, whose purpose is to close the modal window and return the string value '1' which will be evalueted by the parent window using the returnValue property.
If returnValue is '1' then the form will be submitted to itself, just to show how to reuse local values and force a timer label...
Whenever you use a postback in a modal window, magically Internet Explorer fires the event in a new page.
To avoid Internet Explorer to act like that, just add...
<base target="_self" />
... wherever you want, just before the HTML Tag or simply in between the HEAD tag of your HTML page.
