That is not the fault of the language, but of the site. This site recognises <code> and <pre> tags but fails to implement them in a useful way.

You fire the programmer and/or get better tools and/or use how to configure them.

Like in C:

total=0;

j=0;

for (int i=0; i<10; i++)

....total+=i;

....j++;
