We're having a white space problem.  When we render to PDF/Printer, all

There are four parameters to play with, not just one ... there is also a shorthand that sets all four parameters:

- the shorthand: white-space="pre"

  - sets the following:   linefeed-treatment="preserve"

If you use a monospaced font and the shorthand or the explicit properties you will get the effect usually desired for program code listings in reports, which is what I think you are asking for.

I hope this helps.
