There's a little orange question mark on the top right of the question text box. If you click that it will show you how to use the features of the text editor. – JSONBog May 25 '10 at 12:16
Moving this to meta, but hit the edit link to see what changes I made to format your code. – Bill the Lizard May 25 '10 at 12:16
I got tired to put the code in SO really? Ever wanted to put code in a Wordpress blog? I am so glad SO uses Markdown.... – Felix May 25 '10 at 12:24
I changed it from "post the code" to "post code" - let me know if you meant "post teh codez". – Andrew Grimm Mar 28 '11 at 2:31
