PRE

 [Local Convention]
The PRE element is used to enclose text to be displayed with a fixed width typewriter-like font. This is useful for presenting text that has been formatted for a teletype, or for a fixed width character display.

In particular, as standard HTML does not contain a TABLE element the PRE element is the only way in which structured tables can be properly displayed.

Things to Avoid
You should NOT use elements that define paragraph formatting within the PRE element. This means you should not use <P>, <ADDRESS>, <Hn> and so on. You should avoid the use of tab characters -- use single blank characters to space text apart.
Things That are OK
You can use Anchor. A typed carriage return will cause a new line in the presented text.

Example

<pre>
  No sooner had these few words penetrated
    my hearing than I felt my powers increase
    beyond themselves; transcendent and elated,

  my eyes were lit with such new-given sight
    that they were fit to look without distress
    on any radiance, however bright
<pre>
