How would you include HTML tags as part of the blockquotes when you would like to signify these tags as quoted text instead of code?

Code:

<url>http://www.website.com/order/index.asp?type=something%20something&DisplayName=N&Material=blah</url>

BlockQuote: (notice that the URL is interpreted as a valid HTML tag and hence is not a part of the text of the blockquote)

http://www.website.com/order/index.asp?type=something%20something&DisplayName=N&Material=blah

You could html encode them yourself:

 &lt;url&gt;http://www.website.com/order/index.asp&lt;/url&gt;

yields:

<url>http://www.website.com/order/index.asp</url>
