    FYI not all class is equals to CPP!!! it depends on the code you write..its either csharp, script, html or sql.. cpp is for C++ code.. refer ur aliases here...

    http://code.google.com/p/syntaxhighlighter/wiki/Languages

    Place your code on the page and surround it with PRE tag. Set name attribute to code and class attribute to one of the language aliases you wish to use.
