in reply to Page rendering bugs

None of that looks like something specific to IE. Perhaps your other browsers have overrides for the default (also known as "standard") behavior of 'pre' tags? Or perhaps the 'pre' tags were fixed by the time you stopped testing with IE versions?

    I used browsershots - perlmonks to occasionally snap screens for IE. It just so happened that those issues showed up today. Firefox 13 worked and a quick check in chromium 22.0.1190.0 (144885) did not show that problem either. The chromium was a clean install no plugins while firefox was the version I use everyday.

      It seems like the default behavior for 'pre' tags has simply changed in modern browsers (and quite recently). You checked lots of old versions of IE. It doesn't look like you are looking at even a second version of any other browsers. I believe it is not an "IE" problem; it is a relatively new browser change. I don't know if that is motivated by a standard change or just a practical improvement.
