Actually, the "code" hyperlink that validator gives which is
suggests wrapping multiline code with 
<pre><code> ... </code></pre>

So, I was going to go one step further with

<pre style="padding-left:5%"><code> ... </code></pre>

or what I was acutally planning to do and throw "padding-left: 5%"
into an in-line stylesheet.

This works for browsers as far back as IE4 and Netscape 4.

Actually, AFAICT the truly correct way should be just
<code "white-space:pre; padding-left:5%"> ... </code>, but 
MS Internet Explorer before version 6.0b has the 
white-space tag semantics backwards :(

The error/warning was implemented by Richard Henderson, so it seems
he would be the best judge.
