I again disagree ;-)

It's really annoying having to markup all lines using an XSLT 2.0 regular 
expression, a vim :%s#^.*$#<l>\1</l># or something similar instead of simply 
including the source in <blockcode 
xml:space="preserve"><![CDATA[...]]></blockcode> or <blockcode 
style="white-space:pre;"><![CDATA[...]]></blockcode>.
For untagged source, <l/> is imho totally superflous.

Okay, then think of markup up a group of lines for giving them an id.
<blockcode>
<div class="class" id="class_A">
<l>public class A {</l>
<div class="method" id="method_A_someMethod1">
<l>public void someMethod() {</l>
<l>System.out.println("Hello, World!");</l>
<l>}</l>
</div>
</div>
</blockcode>
<p>See method <code href="#method_A_someMethod1">someMethod()</code> in the 
above example <code href="#class_A">class A</code>, it just ...</p>

Bye
