How do I format my code blocks?

I know that if a line is preceded by 4 spaces it is treated as code. Is there a quicker way to enter multi line code? It is quite difficult to go to each line of code and add 4 spaces for quite a lot of lines.

is there something equivalent to the vbulleting forums where you used [code] [/code] tags?

You can type the code normally, then highlight the block and Ctrl+K it:

code 1;
code 2;
code 3;

This is also available on the toolbar as the code {} button.
