Another solution would be to look for the hash-bang line
that would seem to denote the start of code, then collect it
and everything up to and including the last semi-colon, and
wrap in code tags. Not a perfect solution, and I'm not sure
how feasible (what with everyone having different hash-bang
lines and all), but a possible solution.
We could just make everything in the text box preformatted
with a PRE tag. That wouldn't be a perfect solution
either, but still a possible solution.
#testing pre and code
After seeing kudra's response, it shouldn't be that hard
to run a regexp against everyone's post (non-greedy) to be
able to split up code and text. Having two code blocks
could be as easy as a good rexexp.
