Code snippets like var foo = "bar"; can be shown inline.

Also, this should vertically align with this and this.

Code can also be shown in a block element.

var foo = "bar";

Code can also use syntax highlighting.

var foo = "bar";
Long, single-line code blocks should not wrap. They should horizontally scroll if they are too long. This line should be long enough to demonstrate this.
var foo = "The same thing is true for code with syntax highlighting. A single line of code should horizontally scroll if it is really long.";

Inline code inside table cells should still be distinguishable.

Language Code
Javascript var foo = "bar";
Ruby foo = "bar"

Small images should be shown at their actual size.

Large images should always scale down and fit in the content container.

This is the final element on the page and there should be no margin below this.
