    Basicly you wrap the code within <pre> and <code> tags </code> </pre>.

    Although that will fix most of it, what will not be fixed are the <tags> with the < and > . To fix those you gotta use a plugin or custom function to htmlentities(); all code within <code> tags.

    If you are using wordpress then there are syntax highlighter plugins. You can try that.
