How to add code syntax highlighting to blogger

I'm new to blog. I would like to add my powershell code to the blog. I had difficulty to follow below links.

I try to use syntaxhighlighter to add code but i have difficult to follow their instruction:


Installation


Basic Steps

To get SyntaxHighlighter to work on you page, you need to do the following:
1.Add base files to your page: shCore.js and shCore.css
2.Add brushes that you want (for example, shBrushJScript.js for JavaScript, see the list of all available brushes)
3.Include shCore.css and shThemeDefault.css
4.Create a code snippet with either <pre /> or <script /> method (see below)
5.Call SyntaxHighlighter.all() JavaScript method

<pre /> method

ADVANTAGES: Works everywhere, graceful fallback if there are script problems, shows up in all RSS readers as regular <pre />

PROBLEMS: Major issue with this method is that all right angle brackets must be HTML escaped, eg all < must be replaced with &lt; This will ensure correct rendering.

SyntaxHighlighter looks for <pre /> tags which have a specially formatted class attribute. The format of the attribute is the same as the CSS style attribute. The only required parameter is brush (see configuration), which should be set as one of the brush aliases

Start from step1, i already no idea to do that.

Please advice

For Wordpress.com all you need to do is put the code in the sourcecode shortcode per their instructions:
