Because there are clearly 3 key "concepts" to be able to distinguish in nice
HTML/PDF output:

- Code fragments :: text files that use the specific numbers of spaces and
  characters to line things up.

- Sample output :: Output from programs, scripts or commands.

- Text giving instructions :: Typically used for quoting passages of an email

The first one is covered in HTML by the src class and in PDF by listings.

The last two are currently handled the same way (ie, not distinguishable). In
HTML, both are mapped onto EXAMPLE.

Best regards,

Sébastien Vauban
