Saki on Pre-line

Here’s an example for the method I’ve described in my previous post: One of my favorite short stories by Saki, The Schartz-Metterklume Method, formatted only with CSS using white-space: pre-line. If you look at the source, you will find that, apart from title and link to the style sheet, the only markup is around the header and a single <p> at the beginning of the text proper.

The <p> isn’t necessary. I used it mainly for the fancy initial, which is achieved with p:first-letter. I could just as well have applied white-space: pre-line to the whole body.
