I cannot find a way to insert line breaks within a code block.

Therefore I cannot use the code block to make a text-based table.

Such issues belong to the Test subforum - if we had one. Let's see how/if this forum software supports tt and pre.

inline tt:

pre:

Neither is supported. New forum software must!

@Johannes
A way to do a text-based table would be with pre tags, but since we don't have it, just put it in plain text without tags.

Edit: Ah, but for that let's see if plain text works as desired. Text-based table using the tab key:

random        words
continue        to
several        lines

Result: Works when you do it in an external editor, but gets somewhat mangled upon pasting here.

Conclusion: Good support of the pre tag is highly desirable.

Thanks, that's exactly what I had intended to do and eventually did (two tables in this post). I tried originally to write the tables within code blocks in order to use a monospaced font, but the result obtained using the standard variable-spaced font was acceptable for a forum post.
