Publish C# formatted code in blogspot

To show formatted C# code in my blog from now on i will use the SyntaxHighlighter by Alex Gorbatchev

The quick setup is paste the following text in the blog template before the </head> tag.

Nice article. Thanks for sharing!

You can also take a look at my Online C# Code Colorizer. It automatically takes care of converting all symbols to valid HTML and then colorizes your code. No JavaScript needed at all! All you have to do is to paste you C# code, press the "Colorize" button and you get the resulting HTML you can use in your blog or website.
