On the contrary, I've often seen <pre> used with <code> to mark up 
pre-formatted code. If you leave out the <code> tag then you've removed 
the semantics of the content, plus some source-code highlighting 
libraries look specifically for <code> tags. If the <pre> tag is left 
out and CSS is used to style code elements as pre-formatted, without CSS 
classes this interferes with marking up code inline.

However, (perhaps tangential to the topic) as far as I know there are no 
rules to say whether the <pre> tags should wrap the <code> tags or 
vice-versa.
