"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years.

if you take a look at the source on the ee page with the code block you will see this is the code in the background:

<div class="codeSnippetButtons"><a class="toggleHighlighting" href="javascript:toggleHighlighting('codeSnippet8119816');">Toggle Highlighting</a>

<a class="openInNewWindow" href="/codeSnippetPopup.jsp?csid=8119816" target="_blank">Open in New Window</a>

<a class="selectAll" href="javascript:selectElementById('codeSnippet8119816');">Select All</a></div>

1. uses javascript.
2. opens the code in a new tab/page
3. uses javascript

I believe you could use parts of to display the code to allow users to select and easily highlight.
