Submit Multiple URLs to del.icio.us Bookmarks as a Batch

If you have a tutorial site, especially of HTML or any other coding, then you know the pain it gives when you have to parse 10, 40 or even 100 lines of code one by one, or even use find and replace tools. Some people have exceptionally great skills to do it in seconds, but this if for the rest, and majority of bloggers. If you still don't understand what I'm talking about here is an example. Say you have to write a simple piece of code in your blog entry like
<html> </html>, you have to convert it first in the format

& l t; html &g t; & lt; /html & g t;

By now you may have understood what I'm talking about. It really makes sense for a blogger to look for an easier way to convert those hundreds of line of code into post friendly format i.e, that format of code which can be written in blogger posts. If you have seen any other tip pertaining to this topic, you may be told that only way to parse the code is to parse it manually or hire a professional to do that(can you really afford it). Thats is a history now. Meet the Postable, the small app to convert your post unfriendly code in to friendly one. Created by Elliot Swan, this is the best app for code bloggers. Once you are there, copy/ paste your entire code and click on MAKE IT FRIENDLY, in a jiffy your code will be converted into blog post friendly format. And again copy the friendly code and paste it in your blog posts. This app rightly says "For you copy/ Pasting pleasure"
