Anything you can do with xmp can be done without it, of course, but it's a work
around.

You're right about whitespace, I'm sorry, I was thinking of something else,
which led me to casually include the cost of converting tabs into tables, which
is where a lot of the time and size would have come from. Granted, the case I
made is a lot weaker than I first thought. I apologise for putting you to the
trouble of having to argue the point.

It's still not good to have to do these conversions though, and they may need
to be reversed after the fact, with Markdown tools for example.

I'll just carry on using <xmp>, as I'm sure others will. It works, it's simple
to explain to users, and it doesn't need to be processed to do what's intended.
