Syntax Highlighting?

So yesterday, I made the mistake of asking you guys to explain about 300 lines of code. The code was a syntax highlighter for code snippets. It supported HTML, CSS, and Javascript. I wanted to understand the code, but I realized that one day I'll have it figured out. So my new question is, can somebody help me make a syntax highlighter like the one I posted, but simplified? I'm going to try making it myself, but I'm open to suggestions. I'm new to coding btw so if I seem stupid, that's why xD

From my codes i built the common function, you could always add more tag conditions into it easily.

You could do something like code = code.replace(/function/g, "<span class='function'>function</span>"); code = code.replace(/var/g, "<span class='var'>var </span>");
