HTMLPreElement

The HTMLPreElement interface exposes specific properties and methods (beyond those of the HTMLElement interface it also has available to it by inheritance) for manipulating a block of preformatted text (<pre>).

Properties

Inherits properties from its parent, HTMLElement.

HTMLPreElement.width This deprecated API should no longer be used, but will probably still work.
Is a long value reflecting the obsolete width attribute, containing a fixed-size length for the <pre> element.

Methods

No specific method; inherits properties from its parent, HTMLElement.
