- CodeFilter uses embed styles to highlight syntax. PHPLighter uses spans with clases and CSS.
- CodeFilter only have one theme and is hard to customize. PHPLighter allows to use different styles using CSS.
- CodeFilter uses highlight_string() that only a fixed number of elements. PHPLighter provides a class that map the elements and detects some PHPDoc tags like @author, @category, etc.
