That's my fault! 
Thanks for the notice, asap I'll upload new distribution to CPAN with these
corrections (of course, "Highlight" is correct).

I see three roads:

1. Include fragment code in your pages with SSI-like tecnhique. For example
with simple Apache built-in SSI:

---sample.shtml, CUTE HERE---
Following <A HREF="/fragments/">code</A>:
<!--#include virtual="/fragments/" -->
shows how to...
---sample.shtml, CUTE HERE---

Notice that you must to put all Perl code fragments under sistem directory
managed by Apache::Syntax::Highlight::Perl and mapped by /fragments/ URI.

2. Improve Apache::Syntax::Highlight::Perl in order to highlight code supplied
on the fly. For example by passing an additional param 'code' to query string.

3. Use Syntax::Highlight::Perl directly in order to build your pages (but
with no line numbers or caching features) with code fragments.
