How do I post snippets of code which include HTML tags when I see that "HTML is ON" for my topic? My code snippet was interpreted literally rather than just displaying for others to see.
I tried enclosing my code with CODE tags as advised in the FAQ but it didn't solve my problem, just formatted my code nicely between two grey bars.

You can put a space between the < and the tag (like < html>)
or
You can use < for < and > for >

Heh. The second option is a toughie - the system keeps reinterpreting things for you.
I believe what Marilyn wanted to write, before UBB changed it, was: use &lt; for <, and &gt; for >.

Thanks, that is helpful. Maybe I can also use the < PLAINTEXT> < /PLAINTEXT> tags ? I just thought of that.
