The html pre allows the text you input to remain unchanged, which allows you to input html, to where it can be viewed. It sets preformatted text like
<pre><b>Welcome</b> to the <del>wonderful</del><ins>great</ins> world of php</pre>
if you types it without the pre tags the welcome would be bold, wonderful would be crossed out with great beside it, instead it will print out exactly as you see it when you use the pre tags.
