.editable_div {

  border-bottom: 1px solid black;

.gallery_preview_big {
  border-bottom: 1px solid #555;

pre .kwd, code .kwd { color: #E28964 !important; }
pre .com, code .com {
  color: #AEAEAE !important;
  font-style: italic !important;
pre .typ, code .typ { color: #89bdff !important; }
pre .lit, code .lit { color: #3387CC !important; }
pre .pun, code .pun { color: #fff !important; }
pre .pln, code .pln { color: #fff !important; }
pre .tag, code .tag { color: #89bdff !important; }
pre .atn, code .atn { color: #bdb76b !important; }
pre .atv, code .atv { color: #65B042 !important; }
pre .dec, code .dec { color: #3387CC !important; }

pre.prettyprint, code.prettyprint {
  background-color: #000 !important;
  -moz-border-radius: 4px !important;
  -webkit-border-radius: 4px !important;
  -o-border-radius: 4px !important;
  -ms-border-radius: 4px !important;
  -khtml-border-radius: 4px !important;
  border-radius: 4px !important;

pre.prettyprint {
  width: 95% !important;
  margin: 1em auto !important;
  padding: 1em !important;
  white-space: pre-wrap !important;

ol.linenums {
  margin-top: 0 !important;
  margin-bottom: 0 !important;
  color: #AEAEAE !important;
li.L0,li.L1,li.L2,li.L3,li.L5,li.L6,li.L7,li.L8 {
  list-style-type: none !important
li.L1,li.L3,li.L5,li.L7,li.L9 { } 

pre { padding: 5px; font-size: 1em !important; }

hr {
  border: none;
  border-top: 1px dotted #AA2200;
  width: 80%;
  margin-left: 0;

Now if you want insert any code snippet into your post you need to edit as HTML (right side of the editor icon set) and put it into a `pre` tag (or `code`). Eg:

<pre class="prettyprint lang-php">
  <!--?php echo 'Test' ?-->

Where lang-XXX is the language what you want to use.

If you have any questions feel free to ask.
