How do I post source code to my blog?

I found the “code” support page to be quite unhelpful. Nowhere on the page does it actually list the shortcode for posting source code!

Here’s what I do:

  1. Write the source code in Notepad++
  2. Switch from Visual Editor to HTML.
  3. Enter opening and closing …
  4. Make sure there is a newline afterward, otherwise the rest of the post will switch to Preformatted style.
  5. Copy and paste into WordPress.
  6. Switch back to Visual Editor.
/* Ampersand test: & &*/
/* The first should be a literal ampersand, and second the HTML entity. */
#button {
        font-weight: bold;
        border: 2px solid #fff;

Tada! HTML escapes seem to work!
