Well, of course you don't have to change the para marks
to line breaks for html. Anybody otta know that! ;-)
But the original poster said he was using automated
html-generating software and most of that software
works on a paragraph-by-paragraph basis. So, if you
leave hard returns at the end of each line of a block
of code, the html generator sees umptybizzillion
separate paragraphs and tags them accordingly. To
convince the software that your code block should
be treated as a single paragraph, you gotta have
line feeds. Otherwise, you get double-spaced code.
