XHTML Tutorial - "pre" Tag/Element
(Continued from previous topic...)
What Is a "pre" Tag/Element?
A pre element is a block level element that can be used directly as
a sub-element in the body element. You can use pre elements to specify
blocks of pre-formatted text with white space characters preserved.
Here are basic rules about pre elements:
- "pre" elements are mixed content elements.
- "pre" elements can have empty contents.
- "pre" elements can have PCDATA as contents.
- "pre" elements can have in-line elements as contents.
- "pre" elements can not have block elements as contents.
- "pre" elements are block elements. They can not be used as in-line elements.
- "pre" elements will be displayed by browsers without line wrapping.
So long lines in the document will be displayed as long lines.
- "pre" elements will be displayed in monospacing fonts in browsers by default.
- "pre" elements preserve white space characters.
Here is a good example of pre elements:
1 2 1
1 3 3 1
1 4 6 4 1
