I believe the mentioned <ol>-listing has some advantages over a <pre> 
listing when we want to style the listing for some devices (see my 

But manually inserting these li's and class="tabulator2" and so on is a 
pain in a long listing.

I thought Dom Scripting can

do thelisting
   for each line in <pre>
   count for tabulators
   ... .createElement('li');
   ... .setAttribute('class',);
   ... .insert_at_aprobate_position	
   next line
while (and so on)

or else one of these nice one-liners in php, some weird expressionistic 
stuff like

$pretty_listing = preg_match_this_or_that('!^\t(.1+~:)&\2?/z',
callback(do_the_list), $pre_listing);

Unfortunately, my English is worse than my CSS, but better than my 
JavaScript or PHP knowledge.

When it's possible to insert tables via the TILT method (Table Injection 
for Layout Technique) -
- it should be not too hard to invent a LIPT method (List Injection for 
Pre Tags).

The inventor would probably get fame and honour, at least a chocolate 
medal from me (only in the E.U.)

But I might be completely wrong (and OT, for sure).
