    Gmail takes the formatting you paste in it. Therefor it become fairy simple. All you need is online text highlighting.

    Best site is - http://tohtml.com/ which lets you copy paste code in gmail, word doc and almost everywhere.

    Next one which is more user friendly and make beautiful code is http://pastebin.com/

    Here is an example -

    highlight or format code in Gmail

    Please note that your friends/client gmail window can be small because of different screen resolutions or if he is viewing the mail in mobile. Therefore this strategy is good only for small screens. Better to link to code in pastebin.
