Using the Subdivision-->Crease Edges command should maintain the hard edge across subdivisions. Note that the creases only work in Silo (IIRC), so if you're planning on exporting to a renderer, the creases will not be remembered.

For the more x-platform approach, you need to add loops near the edges. Pushing the loops up right near the corners will give you hard corners, and the geometry will remain when you export to another app.

The board seemed to lose my first response so here goes again:

You can use the Subdivision-->Crease Edges command to keep your edges hard when subdividing.

If you are exporting your model to another application, the creases will be ignored. If you wish to retain hard edges on your exported model, create additional loops near the edges in question and slide your new loops up close to the edge; this will make your edges hard and keep your corners pointy.

hth,
