The problem isn't specific to Frame, it's an HTML thing. I convert
from Word to HTML and had to resolve the same problem.

To prepare code examples before converting to HTML, replace all tabs
with spaces *and* replace all hard returns with soft returns or newline
characters. On Windows platforms, the keystroke is shift+enter -- and
yes, this works just as well in Frame as it does in Word. (I've made a
macro for this 'cause I use it all the time!)

Once you've prepared the text as a single paragraph, you can use <pre>
tags and achieve the desired results without double spacing.

HTH!
