Tool for exporting formatted code to HTML?

Quick poll… When writing blogs or articles, what do you use to nicely format code snippets as HTML? I am particularly curious if anyone found an Eclipse plugin that simply exports the style that’s visible in the Eclipse editor rather than trying to implement parsing and styling on its own.

I use Syntaxhighlighter from http://alexgorbatchev.com/wiki/SyntaxHighlighter because what we blog about is usually a mix of Java, XML, plaintext and shellscript.

If anything you need something that replaces the < and > with < and >

Not an eclipse plugin but good anyway: Use highlight[1] to format your source code. The tool supports different programming languages as well as different output formats, XHTML is one available format.
