Thanks! It works flawless. A nice extra feature with be a 'copy' button to copy the content to the clipboard, as lots of my snippets can be used directly. Thanks again.

Thanks! Worked like a charm. Can't seem to figure out how to customize anything on it, but it solved the annoying code block problem my theme created.
