How to Show JavaScript or HTML Code on Blogger Blog Posts

When I started blogging, I felt difficulty with showing codes (both JavaScript code and HTML code) on blog posts. Whenever I type codes on posts, Blogger automatically starts interpreting it even if I select the option Show HTML literally under Blogger post settings options. So I was forced to show the codes as images rather than in text format. Then I realized a way to convert the script into parsed form by converting certain characters of the code in to escape characters.

After converting a script into escaped version, we can show it on the blog without having any trouble. This tutorial explains how to convert a script into parsed form and show inside the blog posts.

How to Display Code on Blogger Posts
To display codes on a Blogger blog, you should convert them to escaped characters and show them under the HTML tag pre as shown below.

Now let us check how to convert a script into the escaped format.

How to Convert HTML/JavaScript code into Escaped Characters
You can simply parse a script into the escaped format by following the changes given below.
  • < must be changed with  &lt;

  • > should be changed with &gt;

In case if the script is too big to convert manually, you can use any tools which convert a JavaScript or HTML script into the escaped version.
