yes.

as happens so often in life :-) I found the reference to the extension providing
the <source> pretty much after posting; first item in editing guidelines, no
less :-(.  without that extension in place I would have argued to keep ml-like
mark-up out of the page; either <nowiki> or <pre> would preserve the given
formatting.  so, sorry, my bad.  hth.
