Embedding non-compiled js or html in page

i would like the ability to embed code in my blog posts. what is the commonly used object for this that does not compile contents?

please excuse if compile is not the correct word, but it best demonstrates my end goal.

If you don't want compiled code, maybe plain JavaScript is the right option? We have a specialized forum on JavaScript here: [webmasterworld.com...]

I assume what you mean is that you want to post HTML code in your blog to see but not be parsed as part of the page? So you can show code to others.

If this is the case are you using a CMS like Wordpress, a lot of the CMS packages out there already have a built in way to do this like [code][/code].

Personally I don't use any kind of technique but instead just use the html code for angle brackets, so the body tag would look like this:


I've never thought about it before but there's probably a script out there to do it too :)

EDIT: In fact, have a look here: [webmasterworld.com...]
