When writing technical HTML documents, I often feel a need for an element to
represent a path or a file in the file system. But I couldn't find any
semantically correct element to do this.

I usually use <em class="filesystem">C:\foo\bar</em> but it just feels

Is it worthy to have another HTML element like <filesystem> (I'm not sure if
this is the better name for the element) to represent a path (e.g.
C:\foo\bar) or a file name (e.g. README.txt)?
