<html xmlns="" xml:lang="en" lang="en">
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=UTF-8" />
<title>HTML Code Example - way2blogging</title>

Now How to Use this on Blogger Post

You want to display scripts and codes on blogger post

  1. Put your Script or Code inside the PRE tags and define class with brush name.
    <pre class='brush:[brushname];'>
    	<!--Put Your Code Here (must be HTML escaped)-->
  2. Make sure your Script or Code must be HTML escaped, eg. all < must be replaced with &lt; This will ensure correct rendering. There are several tools to convert Your code !
    i. HTML Entities Encoder / Decoder
    ii. Encode / Decode HTML Entities
    iii. Postable
  3. For suppose i am showing a JavaScript code.

    i am defined a <pre></pre> tags, and defined a class <pre class=''></pre> and gave a brush name as <pre class='brush:js;'></pre>

  4. Then i paste converted code inside this tags
  5. finally my code is like
    <pre class='brush:js;'>
    	&lt;script type=&quot;text/javascript&quot;&gt;
    	var d = new Date();
    	var time = d.getHours();
    	if (time &lt; 10) {
    	document.write(&quot;&lt;b&gt;Good morning&lt;/b&gt;&quot;);
    	} else {
    	document.write(&quot;&lt;b&gt;Good day&lt;/b&gt;&quot;);
  6. it results like this
    	<script type="text/javascript">
    	var d = new Date();
    	var time = d.getHours();
    	if (time < 10) {
    	    document.write("<b>Good morning</b>");
    	} else {
    	    document.write("<b>Good day</b>");

    The problem has arisen.
    When a lot is written in, there is a useless new-line.

      Harish August 2, 2012 11:03 pm #

      lines are wraps if they are too long. but no count is added to the new line.
