I'm trying to figure a way of showing CSS / HTML and javascript code in a page,  I've managed to get the html code to show how I want but want to put it in a scrolling windows.

I thought I could try and use an iFrame, but its a bit of a mess making another page to pull the html in, eg:-
<iframe src="mycode.php"></iframe> 

Open in new window


What I would have preferred to use is:-
<iframe><strong>Hello</strong><I>Test</I></iframe> 

Open in new window


However it doesn't show the html inside.

I read an article that used a textArea to put html code inside, but using the code just puts the raw html in (without highlighting):-
<textarea><strong>Hello</strong><I>Test</I></textarea>

Open in new window


Experts-exchange seem to be able to do it (without highlighting).

How does everyone else do it?

Replace the open and close brackets with &gt; and &lt;.  This will allow you to display the markup but not cause the browser to interpret it as HTML.

I'm sorry, I misunderstood the question.  [tailoreddigital]'s <code> tag may be the way to go.

You can also just convert non alpha numeric's to entities http://www.webmaster-toolkit.com/html-entity-chart.shtml

Then place all of that in a div with a height class set to overflow scroll.
