Formatting Code Examples in WordPress

Had a mare getting WordPress to display code samples in a consistent way – the handling seems to vary between different themes as well.
Paying $15 for the custom CSS seems a bit much for something as basic as this
Found the below after some experimentation, seems to work in all themes so far:

    <pre>
        <code> 
            //code here (pasted in tabs are preserved)
            //And the text does not wrap - see:....................................................................................................................................................
        </code>
    </pre>
