How do I format my code blocks?

There has got to be a better way of adding code blocks than adding 4 spaces to EACH line. I have seen <pre><code> tags before, but they don't work when using #include <someheader>. Have I missed something?

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

"Have I missed something?" Er...the {} button? – dmckee Jul 14 '12 at 4:38
Indeed I have. I've missed it for 10+ months now. – Drise Jul 14 '12 at 4:58

You use the { } button - highlight the lines of code you want to turn into a code block, and hit the button.

enter image description here

Here is code on line one
Here is code on line two

There is also a ? button at the top right of the textbox, you can click on that for more formatting help.

I honestly I have never seen this. Is this new? – Drise Jul 14 '12 at 4:39
@Drise definitely not. – Aaron Bertrand Jul 14 '12 at 4:39
@Drise See my comment on the question immediately preceding yours. Admittedly long ago it was called the 0101010101010101010101 button. But that was harder to type. – dmckee Jul 14 '12 at 4:56
Also, select the whole block and press Ctrl+K (on Windows) – Damien Pirsy Jul 14 '12 at 10:40
