Here is some preformatted text that has been created with the pre element. Note that it retains the paragraph tab included in the original document. Also, it does not "collapse" line feeds and white spaces. Often, it is easier to use preformatted text than it is to use markup to get the same effect. Note, however, that the default rendering of preformatted text is to use a monospaced Courier font. This is often a good choice for displaying code in an HTML document, but perhaps not a good choice for other kinds of text content.
Note too, that the text is now centered. The way the text is displayed will depend on how you have the display window set in your browser. It may change when you go from full screen to a window, for example.
Centering is now turned off. The default text alignment is to the left of your screen. You can change the size and color of text by using the <font> element.
