# This is for version 3
+#
+# On CentOS 6.2 (using highlight from EPEL), when highlight doesn't know about
+# an EXTENSION, it outputs a lua error and _no_ text, even when the --force
+# option is used.
+#
+# Also see the bug reports at:
+# http://sourceforge.net/tracker/?func=detail&aid=3490017&group_id=215618&atid=1034391

+#
+# This workaround can be removed when the bug is fixed upstream and the new
+# version is packaged in most distributions.
+#
+# The workaround is to set the extension to 'txt' (plain text) when highlight
+# exits with an error (doesn't know the format).
