Add HTML Code in Blogger Post:

If you are going to put html in your blogger post, please follow the this few steps.
Note: Before you are going to add html to blogger post you convert it as xml compatible one. that html to plain text usign this html to xml parser tool  .
If I am going  to add following line html code in blogger post.
    <footer class="footer">
     <div class="container">
         <p class="text-muted text-center">
            Copy right by <a href="">

Copy your html code and paste in the html to xml parser tool, Now it will automatically parse the html code in to xml compatible code.

 Now copy the converted code and paste it in your blogger post, between this <pre class='prettyprin'>...</pre> tag.

<pre class='prettyprint'>

Now switch to html editor and paste your html between <pre class='prettyprint'>... </pre> tag. Once you are to added successfully your code will like this.
