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.
