Can we have syntax highlighting on meta?

The following code example on meta renders without any syntax highlighting, despite a syntax highlighting directive:

from math import sqrt

class Triangle:
def hypotenuse(self):
# equation 2
return sqrt(self.a**2 + self.b**2)


(The directive used here is <!-- language: lang-py -->.)

On mainsite it renders fairly prettily:

The lack of syntax highlighting impacts the readability of meta documentation, such as in this Mathjax documentation here which includes the above Python block — as a screenshot, not as an actual code block, so as to get the code syntax highlighted properly to demonstrate what this would look like mainsite.

• For what it's worth, it looks like there is syntax highlighting on SO meta; when I did a quick copy / paste of this question over there, the preview rendered both with color coding. – Pikalek Jun 19 at 17:18
