# Talk:Verbatim text

• A question for Taco: why is utf-8 in the example (charset=utf8) highlighted in that way?
• There is not enough state information (it responds to the equals sign). I can fix verb-xml.tex and see if Hans accepts a patch ... Taco
• A question for Patrick: how can I write XML inside `<texcode>`, so that TeX highlighting is prevented? (don't worry too much about it, it's no harm if an example or two don't work perfectly, `<pre>` can still be used)
Example:
```\startXML
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Strict//EN"
"http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-strict.dtd">
<html>
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8" />

On the "Syntax Highlighting in Color" section: This needs some introductory text, but I'm not quite sure what to put. Is the syntax highlighting tied to `\setuptyping[option=color]`, or to using `\startXML` rather than `\starttyping`? (Actually, the `\setuptyping` seems to be redundant; when I comment it out, I still get colored highlighting. Is that how it's supposed to work, or is it just a Wiki weirdness?)

• both `\setuptyping[option=color]` and `\setuptyping[option=XML]` turn on colorization (the latter one is implicit in \startXML). Use `\setuptyping[XML][option=none]` to turn it off Taco 09:00, 28 Aug 2005 (UTC)
