Discussion on: 10 HTML Elements You Didn't Know You Needed

The three-backticks stuff is specific to Markdown, although it's usually handled by a library such as Pygments, which you can certainly use on its own as well.

YOu can also use the <pre><code>...</code></pre> tag to preformat stuff although that won't do syntax highlighting and you'll need to convert < to &lt;. (Technically you only need <pre> but that's a visual tag while <code> is the semantic tag to say what the text represents.)

Thank you very much for your quick response.

Yes, it is the need to convert the angle brackets plus also keeping the indentation/readability intact that is kind of odd to do still "manually" in 2020. (Am sure there are online converters or we could write one ourelves, but still ... hoping for a more efficient way)
