Have pushed this small patch to an |issue-697| branch for consideration 
and discussion...

This patch has several other consequences!

Yes, it does *avoid* adding any indent to the first text line of the 
|<pre>|, which is good...

But it also *removes* the indent from the previously indented |<pre>| 
tag, *and* |<textarea>| tags. Now this *may* be acceptable, *but* it 
does mean adjusting about 10 of our regression 
<https://github.com/htacg/tidy-html5-tests> tests expects output. Again 
this *may* be acceptable...

And it does *not* remove a newline added after the |<pre>| if the line 
length is greater than the current wrap value, as discussed in #158 

So at best this is a partial *fix*, with other consequences... so as 
mentioned maybe there is a better way to address this, and its 

Look forward to further feedback... thanks...

I certainly hope you become a github member so you can receive these 
notifications automatically... github only send you items you have 
selected, unlike some other sites I know...

Regards, Geoff.
