The result will something like <div class="section programlisting"> and
<em class="programlisting">. If your CSS stylesheet is nonspecific
about the programlisting class value:

.programlisting {...}

instead of

pre.programlisting {...}

you'll likely get odd results. Your gun, your bullet, your foot?
