+ === Documents ===
  A CouchDB document is an object that consists of named fields. Field values may be strings,
numbers, dates, or even ordered lists and associative maps. An example of a document would
be a blog post:
- {{{
+ {{{#!highlight javascript
+ {
      "Subject": "I like Plankton"  
      "Author": "Rusty"  
      "PostedDate": "5/23/2006"  
      "Tags": ["plankton", "baseball", "decisions"]
      "Body": "I decided today that I don't like baseball. I like plankton."  
+ }
  In the above example document, `Subject` is a field that contains a single string value
"I like plankton". `Tags`  is a field containing the list of values "plankton",  "baseball",
and "decisions".
