I'll try. :)  When the WikiPublisher PDF comes back, nothing generated by 
Beautifier is displayed.  I'll have to try the other syntax highlighter in 
the Recipe list.  Haven't had a chance yet.  You can see the glitch if you go 
here:  http://wikiserver.eeinternet.com/Main/WikiPublisherBeautiferGlitches 
and publish the PDF.

This may very well be what happens.

I guess I'm not 100% clear on that comment.  Do you mean no syntax highlighter 
will work with Wiki Publisher?  Or am I not following you?  Is there 
a "PmWiki way" of generating output vs. the way Beautifier is doing it?
