| The source tag has a specific meaning hence the class="code"

| However, the skin should really allow the user to pass class

| main/webapp/skins/common/html/document2html.xsl:
|    <xsl:template match="source">
|      <xsl:apply-templates select="@id"/>
|      <pre class="code">
| to:
|    <xsl:template match="source">
|      <xsl:apply-templates select="@id"/>
|      <pre>
| 	<xsl:attribute name="class">
| 		<xsl:apply-templates select="@class"/>, code
| 	</xsl:attribute>
| Please test it and let us know if this works.

I've tested and it works just fine. I will try to file a bug report. 

However, let me explained my original issue and why I did want to apply
a style to <pre> tag.
The problem with the <pre> tag is that it does not wrap long lines. So
if you have a log file dump or any thing else with very long the line,
the final document looks very ugly. So I found a solution to apply a

    .myskin {
      font-size: 95%;
      white-space: pre-wrap;       /* css-3 */
      white-space: -moz-pre-wrap;  /* Mozilla, since 1999 */
      white-space: -pre-wrap;      /* Opera 4-6 */
      white-space: -o-pre-wrap;    /* Opera 7 */
      word-wrap: break-word;       /* Internet Explorer 5.5+ */

( I have not invented this one, found it through google )

It worked fine both in Firefox and IE6 for <pre> tags. However, it does
not work so well for <p> tags in IE6 since IE6 does not really support
white-space: pre-wrap;. But hey who is using this old browser anyway ;) 

I am documenting this because in the 


I found this for the <pre> tag:  

<!-- Temporarily removed long-line-splitter ... gives out-of-memory
problems -->
    <xsl:call-template name="format">
    <xsl:with-param select="." name="txt" /> 
     <xsl:with-param name="width">80</xsl:with-param> 

And if this is causing out-of-memory errors, then may be a CSS can be
applied (only for the <pre> tags) instead of XSL. Just a suggestion
