The HTML "pre" element allows us to display all the information that is contained between the start and end marks just as we have written it, respecting even the blank spaces and line breaks.

<!DOCTYPEhtml>
<html>
<head>
  <title>page title</title>
  <meta charset="UTF-8">
</head>
<body>
<h1>HTML pre tag</h1>
<pre>
 select * from publishers
    left join books
    on editoriales.codigo=books.codigoeditorial;
</pre>
</body>
</html>
