    Hello ^_^

    I have a website and part of it includes some basics of setting up a simple html page with a simple css style. The only problem is that I do not know what to do to display html code on the page in text format without the browser treating it as code.

    At the moment I have written [html] for example and told people to replace the [ and ]'s with < and >'s but I do not like this solution. I believe there may be a way to tell the browser to treat the code as simple text but I do not know it.

    PHP Code:
    Something like this would be fine!
    Without a box would be preferable though
    If anybody could help me I would be very greatful! Thank you for your patience!

    There was a tag, <pre></pre> I think it was called, but that was omitted in xhtml I think.

    You could always put the text in a text area, like this:

    HTML Code:
    <textarea rows="30" cols="10">
    There's probably a better way of doing this though. I'll think about it a bit more.

    A text area is the easiest method.

    Otherwise you have convert all of your < to &lt; and your > to &gt; etc.

    There are a couple of online tools that will do this for you. Here is one.

    You should place your code inside <code></code> tags once you have it converted. You can then apply css to your code tags to style it as you like.
