Pygment for Php Generating class=x for all lines

By default pygment requires that php code starts with <?php for highlighting to work. Enabling startinline as highlight php startinline corrects it. For example, below code shows no syntax highlights because pygment generates class=x for all lines.

if (current_user_can( 'manage_options' ) // Admin allowed
 || ( ($comment->user_id == $user_ID) // User matches
 && ( $time_ago < (60 * 24 * 60)) ) // Live for 24 hours
)
 edit_comment_link(__('Edit', 'sandbox'), ' ', '');

Per pygment documentation for php defining startinline as highlight php startinline, starts highlighing without a need of <?php tag as shown below.

if (current_user_can( 'manage_options' ) // Admin allowed
 || ( ($comment->user_id == $user_ID) // User matches
 && ( $time_ago < (60 * 24 * 60)) ) // Live for 24 hours
)
 edit_comment_link(__('Edit', 'sandbox'), ' ', '');
