I have just downloaded the Windows Live Writer software for blogging purposes but it contains nothing for formatting source code.

I have installed many plugins like code snippet, insert code etc. but they all seem so naive. Can someone suggest a good formatting plugin for Windows Live writer or alternatively please suggest some good blogging software with built in support for code highlighting and formatting

This question came from our site for power users of web applications.

A common approach to sharing code snippets in HTML page is using some kind of javascript library that applies the code formatting and highlighting on the client-side. One such library is google-code-prettify.
