Pasting Code Into Your Blog Using QuickEscape
If you're like me and paste a lot of code into your blog, you might find QuickEscape handy. This is a handy website that lets you paste in some text, and convert it into HTML-safe characters e.g. & becomes &, < becomes <, > becomes >, etc.
Caveat: It seems to have a bug (feature?) in which it also converts HTML-safe characters back to their original characters, so be careful with it.
Update: If you use the XEmacs text editor, an even better solution is to use the HTMLize package.
