P or PRE?

For you purists out there: P or PRE?


  • Tommy Olsson says:

    I'd say it depends. If only the line breaks matter, then use <code>P</code> with <code>BR</code>s in them. If all whitespace has meaning, use <code>PRE</code>.

  • Robert says:


    Yes, I guess that sounds reasonable.

    I was hoping that addressing the post to purists would generate a reply from you… πŸ™‚

  • Tommy Olsson says:

    To tell you the truth, I'm beginning to interpret words like 'purist' and 'zealot' as compliments now, since they seem to be used as the opposite of 'lazy and ignorant'. πŸ™‚

    If something is worth doing, it's worth doing well.

    It's easy to go over the top, though. There has to be a foundation of realism at all times.

  • Robert says:

    Oh, definitely, it's a thin ledge to walk on.

    But, in this case at least, it was meant as someone who actually cares about how things should be. πŸ™‚
