Hey Fernando,

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.
