HTML <pre> tag




Advertisements

Function:

The HTML <pre> tag is used for indicating preformatted text. The code tag surrounds the code being marked up.

Browsers normally render pre text in a fixed-pitched font, with whitespace in tact, and without word wrap.

Difference between HTML and XHTML:

The width attribute of the pre element is deprecated in HTML as well as in XHTML.

Example:

<pre>
      This text is
 in a fixed-pitch
        font, and it preserves
 both    spaces and line breaks
</pre>

This will produce following result:

      This text is
 in a fixed-pitch
        font, and it preserves
 both    spaces and line breaks
