Wanted: Text Processor for This Blog That Don’t Force Me to Manually Indent Code Blocks

The subject says it all. I’m currently using [Markdown](http://daringfireball.net/projects/markdown/syntax.php). However as you can see on my other post it does too much to my code blocks. Code blocks don’t need quote prettying, thank you very much! It also requires me to use at least four spaces for indenting, it really does require a very good eyesight to be able to count that much spaces when I need to reedit the code later on. The alternative is to use tabs, but with the web browsers I’m using, tabs are used to move focus between form elements!

I would prefer [Wikipedia](http://en.wikipedia.org)’s syntax, it only requires one space. Or even better: [PHPWiki](http://phpwiki.sf.net)’s syntax, which doesn’t require reindenting at all. Is there any way to use any of those syntax on a [WordPress](http://www.wordpress.org) blog?


  1. Markdown allows you to use good old-fashioned ‘pre’ and ‘code’ HTML tags, if you find that easier to use than Markdown’s own indentation-for-code-blocks style.
