Inserting Code?

How can I copy and paste a snippet of code (in order to ask a question), without the code losing its formatting (e.g. indentation, tab spacing, etc.)?

Use the UBB "CODE" tags. On the editing screen, look below the big textarea and you'll see a bunch of buttons; one button says "CODE". Push it to create a set of CODE tags. Put your code in between those tags, and any formatting will be preserved.
