    XSL-FO has many properties for a block that will help to get this output.

    Not sure what you mean there.

    ... is to have the stylesheet not collapse the white space and to preserve
    the linefeeds that it finds:

       <block linefeed-treatment="preserve"
      .... indented program text ...

    Then decide if you want long lines clipped or wrapped using wrap-option=.

    I hope this helps.
