TIP : Place the mentioned code just before the end of body tag

I had this nasty issue of Formatting the code for putting it up on the Blogger. With it being so popular, it was definately a turn off for geeks who would like to post some code on their Blog. I dont know how they manage, but it eats up a lot of my time. I have used other editors like TinyMCE and FreeTextbox and they work great. I dont know why the blogger Editor is so dumb! So I did some googling and found out a solution for making it easy for me. Its still not easy though. I still need to find a better way to do it. But as of now this should be good. Without doing the copy/ paste job, here's the link that will explain you the stuff. After its implementation, you would be able to see what it looks like in my previous post made today.

Happy source coding!
