I was being a little evasive on that one.  <example> is deliberately NOT
preformatted.  In general, rendering seems to work much better when we
avoid using <pre> sections.  It prevents lots of problems with page-flow,
and makes stylesheets easier.  However, <pre> is used extensively in the
docs, and can save a bunch of time.  So, feel free to use <example><pre>
... </pre></example> if you need to.

Perhaps I should add a list of "discouraged but allowed" tags.  The main
goal here is not to make things too difficult.
