implement basic syntax highlighting for pre, code and/or samp tags
I subscribe to a growing number of programming-related blogs, and posts with larger pieces of code become much less comfortable to read than on the origin website. I think (even very basic) syntax highlighting would remedy this.

I think syntax highlighting is overkill. But there is been a lot potential to improve how preformated code is displayed in oldreader.
I think this is a wrong place to do such things. Not only this is unrelated to feed aggregation and would be an overkill, but also reader has no reliable way of knowing in which language given snippet is written in. Instead, it would be much better to simply allow some of the formatting as it's published in the feed by origin website. I've seen some requests for that already posted here.
