HTML pre Tag Tutorial

In this section, we will learn what the <pre> element is and how to use it.

What is <pre> Tag in HTML?

HTML <pre> element stands for preformatted and is used when we want to add a text content to an HTML document and want it to be displayed the same way that was written in the body of the <pre> element.

Basically, content in the body of a <pre> element keeps its format (font width, spaces, and line breaks).

Note: if you use the <p> element to add text content to an HTML document, the format of those contents will be lost and you need to use CSS to reformat the content.

HTML <pre> Tag Syntax:

<pre> content... </pre>

HTML <pre> Tag Values

The value of the <pre> element is a preformatted text content that we want it to be displayed the same way that was written in this body.
