Not sure why you're having a problem as my posts come out fine without any
corruption of spaces or other chars. However, if your actual posts included
the extra spaces in the <pre> or </pre> tags or the trailing
underscore in the closing <pre> tag as above that would explain it.
This forum software is more strict than typical browsers.

I use:

<pre style="line-height: 50%;"> ... </pre >
<pre... must begin on a new line
</pre > must include a space before the trailing ">"

I also place the ending "</pre >" on a new line.

I am also wrapping this entire post with these tags to preserve your
post's formatting. In addition, because the above are HTML tags, I had to
post the LT and GT chars as &LT and &GT encodings which I did not
have to do when posting batch code nor with your tags with the extra spaces.

BTW, in case you didn't notice, unlike many forums, on this one you can delete your post, edit and resubmit it. So you can experiment with your formatting. View your submnitted post to see the delete button.

Namaste', Art
