I wonder if there is any way to highlight the code (things like "def" "for") in the notebook.

I have found some informations about the css fileused by notebook but maybe someone could describe me the way if there is one.

Currently, the notebook does not syntax highlighting for the input cells; however, it does include CodeMirror which is used to do syntax highlighting for "data files" in the notebook. This was added at #7501. With a little bit of hacking, it'd be possible to add this support to input cells. It would basically involve adding a bit of Javascript code at the end of each cell. The main reason why this hasn't been done yet is due to performance reasons.
