I found that option right away, but it still doesn't roundtrip the
source text through a save/edit cycle. The non-HTML markup loses its
effect and becomes plain text wrapped in HTML. I had to save a copy of
the source in an editor outside the browser. I tried doing the whole
post in HTML, but it was applying PHP syntax highlighting to my <code>
elements and I did not find a way to turn that off.
