Code markup in Tech blogging
Posted on October 14, 2008
Anybody who knows a good tool for tech blogging – especially for making code markup?
Often it is necessary to include a peace of code in this blog, but the result looks awful. The only posible way to make some kind of format is to encapsulate the code in <code> blocks. An alternative way is to use some of the tools avaliable on the net (e.g. http://delphi.fosdal.com/2008/07/source-code-highlighting-in-blogger.html) but that requires a lot of cut/paste.
I just want a simple windows application that supports rich text and pasting of code. Somebody must have made this!

Its a plugin to Visual Studio that integrates into the context menu, providing a “Copy as HTML” link.
