NAME

wml::fmt::verbatim - Really Preformatted Verbatim Text

SYNOPSIS

 #use wml::fmt::verbatim

 <verbatim>
 Text with <,> and & characters,
     leading whitespaces and
 pre  formatted   blocks
 </verbatim>

 #     To include the file ``bar'' verbatim
 <verbatim-file src="bar">

DESCRIPTION

This is an enhanced "<pre>" tag which really formats as plain text, i.e. escapes the characters `"<"', `">"' and `"&"'.

The usage is simple: Just surround the text with the "<verbatim>" container tag and then all text inside it will be threated as really verbatim text, i.e. a preformatted area with all problematic characters sequences escaped.
