Lets say you want to display:
In html, to display that, you would have to write:
Using php to echo the html:

Or, display it in a text area.
<textarea name="ta1" rows="10" cols="50">
echo "<div>Hello World</div>\n";

Well those <br> tags you are putting in the string aren't being run through html special characters are they? Furthermore, if I am a client of the poster, and I cut and paste your new string into my website, is it going to display the html?

Ok, I see what you are doing with the \r\n and <br> tags. Will someone cut and pasting the new string into their browser be able to have the html entities execute as html?

Ahhh...I think I understand now. Will the html entities display like html, but they don't execute?

For good measure you might want to stick the modified $code string inside of <pre></pre> in order to preserve any indenting and whatnot. What do you mean by "display like html"?

If you cut and pasted the output of what we're discussing you would get plain text with no html entities present.

Like the first reply said:
If you want this html to literally be displayed:
then you send the html entity version to the browser?
I think that must be it. Ok, then I have one suggestion to your suggestion, use str_replace() instead of the regexp, it's faster. Thanks for the lesson!
