 Take MediaWiki for example. It would never think of "enhancing" what the
 user entered, even though it has pretty CSS, etc.
 So it is quite a shock that one needs to turn to plugins, etc. just to
 stop this from happening in WordPress.

 And no, one does not only wish to stop this "MicroSoft style
 'moronizing'" of characters only when entering computer code snippets,
 but for plain text too.

 Indeed, even the goofiest of word processors has a switch to turn such
 silliness off, but with WordPress one needs to hack or plugin.
