Text Formatting Div's and Class's

Quick one, on the terminal output that's shown on  this website here how are they displaying that?

What I mean is, it's formatted with all the spaces properly? If I tried to paste that format into html it would remove all the spaces and cram it over to the left.

I have a div class that I use on my own site, and Id like to be able to render text like that in a div I've applied a class to - how do I do that?

Thanks

Pete

They're using the "<pre>" tag.
It preserves whitespace and line breaks.

OK - Can that be applied via a class?

Or is it a stand alone element?

The <pre> tag is what's keeping the linespace and linebreaks, but all the colouring is applied using normal CSS, such as pre.terminal {}

If you need to apply the same whitespace/breaks, why try and re-invent the wheel using classes - just use the <pre> tag - it what it's there for.

If you need to in order to apply it to existing elements, the same thing can be achieved with

.myStyle { white-space:pre; }
