Ugh. I like this in concept but I think the HTML for it is poor:

<p><tt class="code"><font size="-1">my $message=&quot;Hello world\n&qu +ot;;<br /> print $message;<br /> </font></tt></p><div class='embed_code_dl'><a href="?part=1;abspart=1; +displaytype=displaycode;node_id=487248">(d/l)</a></div>

The code is wrapped in <p> tags. The d/l link is wrapped in a <div>. And nothing wraps the two of them to keep them together. If I style my CSS to put a border, some indent, and some margin around my code, the d/l link is on the outside of that. I'd rather see something more like this (indents for clarity of explanation only):

<div class="codeblock"> <div class="codebody"> <tt class="code"> [actual code] </tt> </div> <div class='embed_code_dl'> [the link] </div> </div>

That way, styles that should apply to both can be applied to the "codeblock", and the other styles can be individually set, too.

I also removed the <font> tags in my example -- I think those should be removed from pm wherever they appear as they make custom CSS a real pain. (I just set the font-size style for font tags to be 100% and that seems to defuse them.) If they are deemed "necessary", they should be replaced by a <span> with an appropriate class and the font-size set in CSS. (I'm not saying someone really needs to hunt them down, but when tweaking the HTML output for a section, that's a great time to remove them.
