Preformatted Text

Typographically, preformatted text is not the same thing as code. Sometimes, a faithful execution of the text requires preformatted text that may not have anything to do with code. For example:

“Beware the Jabberwock, my son!
    The jaws that bite, the claws that catch!
Beware the Jubjub bird, and shun
    The frumious Bandersnatch!”

Code

Code can be presented inline, like <?php bloginfo('stylesheet_url'); ?>, or within a <pre> block.

#container { float: left; margin: 0 -240px 0 0; width: 100%; }

Blockquotes

Let’s keep it simple.

Good afternoon, gentlemen. I am a HAL 9000 computer. I became operational at the H.A.L. plant in Urbana, Illinois on the 12th of January 1992. My instructor was Mr. Langley, and he taught me to sing a song. If you’d like to hear it I can sing it for you. HAL 9000

And here’s a bit of trailing text.
