This is the line in the xml file that get's parsed: 

<pre>show this as is ... <b>e x a c t l y</b></pre>

Everything between the pre tags is stored in a variable (temp_storage) 
and fed to the Preformatted flowable class. I use the Normal style of 
whom the font is Times-Roman I think. Since only the data between the 
pre tags is stored, there are no newlines or empty lines present 
(checked that first).

styles = getSampleStyleSheet()
self.styleN = styles['Normal']

self.flowables.append(Preformatted(temp_storage, self.styleN, 
bulletText=None, dedent=0))

I'm going to rewrite/reorder some of my code and will do some more 
tests with the preformatted class.
