in thread using <pre> tags for citing perldocs!

good point ... but paragraphs and newlines get lost.

123456789 123456789 123456789 123456789 123456789 123456789 123456789 +123456789

code tags in the monastery seem to break after 70 chars, simply extending them to 80 chars would solve the problem in most cases, since xterms default to 80x25.

I think nowadays thats acceptable, another - backward compatible - solution would be a new tag "quote" which works like "code" but with 80 chars wrap.
