add language cell-magic highlighting to more exports #586
Asciidoc seems to be based on pygments as well: http://asciidoctor.org/docs/asciidoc-syntax-quick-reference/#source-code
As far as markdown goes, what was previously there was what we use for the main language identity inside the notebook.
My only thought is that pandoc is expecting to see not pygments but skylighting language names, and that github is using Linguist and I don't know how compatible those three are. I could imagine markdown being transformed into any of the three… my gut is to go with pygments because we are a python based tool and let people who have issues come to us and we make changes as needed.
