Okay, that's hella easy.  But now I'm confused.  I had read more or less
this on 


But this page says you have to modify the config.php for each style and
other stuff that made me just shake my head and look farther.

Also, after using your >>pre<< syntax I realized that this generates
<div class="pre">

which is exactly what I want.

In short, it seems that many things are much easier than they seem from the
documentation.  I'll do some testing and then see if I can simply those
pages a bit and put the config.php stuff farther done and properly marked
as optional.
