If you had a choice between optimizing the forum post form around cut and paste from Visual Studio and Word or around the "format code" buttons that exist today which would you choose and why?

Option 1: Support cut and paste from the Visual Studio editor (or other rich text sources) that would preserve formatting and colorization.

Option 2: Improve and Extend the code formatting buttons that exist today. 

It would be great if you could also explain why you made the choice you did. 

Feel free to comment here or on the thread I started on the forum web site.
