I decided to host SyntaxHighlighter myself and uploaded files to my DropBox and configured my blog accordingly.

I am able to see the code properly highlighted.

What I want to know is, would hosting static files on DropBox be a trouble for my account, in terms of bandwidth?

My blog is a low-traffic blog and occasionally contains code.

We watch carefully for any fraudulent use of Dropbox public links and will suspend suspicious links when they are detected. Links that use up more than 20 GB/day for Basic (free) accounts and 200 GB/day for Pro and Teams (paid) accounts are automatically suspended.

From Dropbox help.
