Posting HTML, CSS and Javascript code in Blogger or WordPress posts

Something that surprises me is that although Blogger.com has extremely good tools to create blog posts, they still haven't catered to the need of web-developers who'd want to post code on their blog. A simple code tag, similar to the blockquote tag would have helped.

On pasting code about d3.js, and publishing the post, the code disappeared. After a lot of searching I found SimpleCode, created by Dan Cederholm. This nifty form allows you to paste your HTML code into it and it converts parts of the HTML syntax into their corresponding character codes which Blogger's parsers recognize. Try it out!

There are more such software
