in reply to <pre> vs. <code> tags

There is some reason to keep the <pre> tags around and I think you just bring it up the good reasons for it. One feature distincts both tags is download link. With <code> tags, the part surrounded is downloadable.

With <code>

#!/usr/bin/perl use strict; use warnings; use DBI; # code following __END__

With <pre>

#!/usr/bin/perl

use strict;    # don't ever write
use warnings;  # without strictures
use DBI;

# code following
__END__

Open source softwares? Share and enjoy. Make profit from them if you can. Yet, share and enjoy!
