This script is now obsolete; a permanent fix has been implemented by Stack Exchange.
Some time ago, Stack Exchange moved to highlight.js v11. One of the breaking changes of this version was the removal of the HTML auto-passthru, which SE uses to indicate addition/deletion in diffs (that is, nested
code elements). As a result, highlighting broke in code blocks for diffs.
The bug was reported on MSO and MSE. A week later, a "hotfix" was pushed which has been out for... 2 months! Essentially, it disabled highlight.js entirely on the pages where there were diffs (revisions and suggested edits).
What is this?
This is a highlight.js plugin. The idea as well as a large part of the code have been taken from this GitHub issue.
