I've never had a problem (using Netscape) just simply opening up .c
files directly.  It recognizes it's not HTML and display's the < and > (as
in #include <blah.h> fine.

However, you're right about the <PRE> tags, using them won't work. :)  Not
using them works better... though having a filter will do the trick I
guess...  Mispoke before.... the #includes show up without the <header.h>

Or better yet, just compress the damn things with GZIP or ZIP, or
whatever, and have the servers handle them as binaries.  Would work better
in the long run anyway since it will waste less space.

Can current eternity servers handle plain binaries?
