    as you know WP does not display html from content or excerpt fields when using short codes to display posts on pages.

    Is there a plugin to hack this limitation?

    That's a pretty bold statement. A shortcode is written by a developer, it could be written to do anything.

    What are you looking to do exactly? Display code within a single text area but force all other html to render properly?

    You could write your own shortcode that uses a php function like: htmlentities() and a <pre> tag to keep your indentation, so something like:
    $yourStuff = "the html coded stuff would get added here";
    $showCode = htmlentities($yourStuff, ENT_QUOTES);
    return <<<HTML
    htmlentities turns html code into their entity form so <bob> becomes something like this <bob>
