As a sort of personal recommendation for now, another option would be to use backticks ` in the Fancy Markdown Editor, and then open the HTML view in that same editor to get the final HTML. Personally I like to write code in Markdown, then convert to HTML when necessary to get in that format. All that can be done using the Fancy Markdown Editor.
