When ppl post code are they formatting so it looks right?
Are they using HTML to do this??

You can use HTML, but the easier way on this forum is to use UBB code - read about it here. Basically, just put a [ code] tag in front of your properly-formatted code (without the space), and a [ /code] tag after (again, without the space). Experiment with it a bit, and use the edit post feature to revise your post as necessary until you like the way it looks.
