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

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.
