Style inline and multiline blocks of code with Bootstrap.

Inline code

Wrap inline snippets of code with <code>. You must escape any HTML angle brackets.

For example, <code>&lt;section&gt;</code> should be wrapped as inline.
Code blocks

Use <pre>s for multiple lines of code and escape any angle brackets in the code for proper rendering. Optionally add the .pre-scrollable class, which will set a max-height of 340px and provide a y-axis scrollbar.

<pre><code>&lt;p&gt;Sample text here...&lt;/p&gt;
&lt;p&gt;And another line of sample text here...&lt;/p&gt;

Use the <var> tag for indicating variables.

<var>y</var> = <var>m</var><var>x</var> + <var>b</var>
User input

Use the <kbd> to indicate input that is typically entered via keyboard.

To switch directories, type <kbd>cd</kbd> followed by the name of the directory.<br>
To edit settings, press <kbd><kbd>ctrl</kbd> + <kbd>,</kbd></kbd>
Sample output

Use the <samp> tag for indicating sample output from a program.

<samp>This text is meant to be treated as sample output from a computer program.</samp>
