Unsupported diff-* highlighting

See original GitHub issue

Issue Description

Prism allows convenient diff line highlighting with preservation of underlying syntax highlighting via a Diff Highlight plugin:

However, trying to use it via 11ty via e.g. ```diff-javascript tag currently fails with

`TemplateContentRenderError` was thrown
> "diff-javascript" is not a valid Prism.js language for eleventy-plugin-syntaxhighlight

`Error` was thrown:
    Error: "diff-javascript" is not a valid Prism.js language for eleventy-plugin-syntaxhighlight
        at module.exports (/mnt/c/src/

Looks like this might require some special handling similarly to TypeScript tag?

Starting with now-available v3.2.1 of this plugin, you can use diff- on the prefix of your language and Eleventy will use the official Prism.js diff-highlight plugin. Look to soon for the official docs on this.
