How do I format my code blocks?
Whenever I try to use HTML tags for a code example on stack overflow, the actual HTML is used on the page, instead of being escaped. To make matters more difficult, only some of the tags are not escaped, making code samples with HTML in them next to impossible. The raw textbox (where I am trying right now) is filled with ampersands and semicolons!
Is this normal, or is there just a problem with by browser or account? Am I missing something here?
EDIT: Yes, I know that you're supposed to indent code with 4 spaces. This only works for about half the tags.
