Preformatted Text & Code
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. Most browsers use Courier and that's a good default.” with one slight adjustment, Courier 10 Pitch over regular Courier for Linux users. 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 can be presented inline, like
<?php bloginfo('stylesheet_url'); ?>
, or within a
block. Because we have more specific typographic needs for code, we'll specify Consolas and Monaco ahead of the browser-defined monospace font.
