No, <pre> indicates that the text inside is pre-formatted. An archive of
plaintext messages, for example, would mark up each message as <pre>:
the message is formatted by plaintext conventions.

(You can't use <l> in this case because each line of a plaintext message
is not a semantic line, as it is in poetry. The line breaks within a
paragraph are determined solely by how much text fits within the wrap width.)
