Specifies that the enclosed text is preformatted and that whitespace should be preserved appropriately. (i.e. The text will render in the browser the same as it was typed into the HTML Editor.)

2.0+ 1.0+ 1.0+ 4.0+ 1.0+

Example

This displays the preformatted declaration of the function foo:

Declare the function foo: 
<pre>
	function foo(fooBar) {
		alert(fooBar);
	}
</pre> 

Remarks

Similar to the <code></code> tag, but the <code></code> tag does not preserve whitespace in code samples. For multiline code examples, or those with indentation, use the <pre></pre> tag.
