Video demonstration pre element

HTML5 pre element: mark up preformatted text

min video details
00:00 video tutorial: pre element
00:05 pre element allows you to mark preformatted text
00:13 in order to keep the exact same format in browser of this code, we will use the pre tag
00:17 note how the code displays on 4 lines in source code and on 1 line only in browser
00:32 → the exact same format in browser as in the source code for that fragment of JavaScript code: the white spaces and the line breaks are maintained due to pre element

For more information about the pre element, please see the specs: W3CWHATWG
