Indeed, I've discussed pre tags with Wayne, I'm not certain there is a good solution there, but we can define whether the two dimensional nature of code is essential to it's use in non-normative text.

Data tables I would want to leave out of a lineariser, and images might be re-sized, both could be reflowed if the user wanted as the image is one item and the table is well structured.

SVG is interesting though, as for SVGs with many elements it uses a technology capable of linearisation, but you would destroy the meaning in most cases.

SVG would be easy to exclude (on the same basis as the resize-content SC).

I know SVG can be resized and have media queries applied to change the appearance, but the kind of linearisation we are talking about here doesn't make sense to me.

Cheers,
