A simple approach
To use it you can add the class "prettyprint" to your pre tags like this:
Then I realised it would be a pain to have to go through all of my posts for the last 12 months and add this class to each pre tag, so I edited the partial view in Umbraco which renders the content grid. I made it replace any opening pre tags with a pre tag with the class of prettyprint.
The partial is in Views > Partials Views > Grid > Editors > Rte
You can change it to this:
@model dynamic @using Umbraco.Web.Templates @Html.Raw(TemplateUtilities.ParseInternalLinks(Model.value.ToString().Replace("<pre>","<pre class=\"prettyprint\">")))
Now my pre tags are formatted automatically and I don't need to add a class to them.
