Hi Werner,

firstly, thanks for the bug report and reporting several bugs I had not
noticed before. The cropping and black box problems are a pain aren't they :-).
Regarding #5

my netscape (Netscape 4.7/Export, 15-Sep-99) and Mozilla honor the font changes.
In my copy of the HTML Definitive Guide by O'Reilly p103 says:

 "The text within a <pre> segment may contain physical and content-based
style changes, along with anchors, images and horizontal rules. When
possible, the browser should honor style changes, within the constraint
of using a monospaced font for the entire <pre> block."

I wonder why 4.73 does not ?
