PRE - fixed width, preformatted text
The PRE tag displays
preformatted text in a fixed-width font. The PRE element displays
all white space and line breaks exactly as they appear inside the
<PRE> and </PRE> tags. Using this tag, you can insert
and reproduce formatted text, preserving its original layout.
This tag is frequently used to show code listings, tabulated
information, and blocks of text that were created for some
text-only form, such as electronic mail messages and news
Unlike the XMP and PLAINTEXT tags, the PRE tag does not suppress
interpretation of other HTML tags. Since the PRE element
interprets HTML tags, you must use special symbols for any
character that has a meaning in HTML that you wish to be displayed
rather than interpreted.
All PRE elements start on a new line, preceded by extra space.
COLS specifies the maximum number of characters
that fit on a line. This effectively turns on wrapping, and lets
you specify the line width in characters.
WRAP specifies that wrapping should be turned on,
so that all lines fit inside the browser.
The UNIVERSAL ATTRIBUTES can be used with this tag.
