I’ve been having some issues with using the WordPress web UI for authoring posts with a lot of code in. You might have noticed that the last attempt at code formatting was somewhat different. I’ve switched to using Windows Live Writer with Steve Dunn’s code formatter for an altogether smoother editing experience. Thus far I’ve found Live Writer to be very good. Time will tell.
On a side note I also upgraded the server to WordPress 2.3.1 which has better support for Live Writer.
