I disagree with that, class doesn’t convey any semantic information, and 
if the code being preformatted is important to the clarity or even 
functioning of the code, it should use <pre> appropriately and not rely 
on the stylesheet.

I personally think Toby Inkster’s examples in his message from 9:16 
yesterday are very nice.
