SquishySyntaxHighlighter and CRC32

For quick and dirty HTML syntax highlighting, have you tried the Squishy Syntax Highlighter? By way of demo, here's a little CRC32 routine I scavenged last year. Update 3/05: I am using client-side javascript highlighting.

I noticed that VS.NET automatically translates the IDE highlighting into the RtfTextBox I paste into. I wonder if it might be easier to just convert the RTF to HTML-- at least that way, I get my IDE highlighting settings instead of the hard coded Squishy settings. I do have a RTF to HTML library I wrote a while ago. Hmm.
