The >>pre<< thing is just applying a CSS class on a div block, and the block 
it is what the markup engine produced.

Notably, the markup engine considers 1 or more empty lines as one (1) 
paragraph break, and usually there is an invisible <div class='vspace'></div> 
between the 2 paragraphs.

To preserve all whitespaces and all empty lines, you should use the [@...@] 

abc   def

   ghi       jkl

If >>pre<< is required, instead of [@...@], you can still use it. To prevent 
the paragraph break, you can have on the empty line the non-breakable space 
&nbsp;, or even the "empty space" [==], like this:
