I just looked into this and I'm running into a limitation of the
Structured Text processor. From a docstring in ClassicStructuredText.py:
- Sub-paragraphs of a paragraph that ends in the word 'example' or the
word 'examples', or '::' is treated as example code and is output as is.
The problem here is that, when using ST, in order to define a
"sub-paragraph", you have to use white space indentation. This
indentation, however, is preserved by the <pre> tag that gets put around
the sub-paragraph. Note, the additional space is not a function of the
style sheet definition for <pre>-- that looks to be OK.
