Styling html code snippets automatically

I have seem many websites and blogs that have code snippets and they are coloured and styled automatically with css that match the particular coding language. Is there a javascript library that does this for you?

For example, when typing code in the treehouse forum. The code is automatically styled.

  <p>hello world</p>

How would I do this on my own website?
