My appologies to all. It appears it is showing the code sections correctly. It is a section from a book and the way it is written it makes it look like you are missing things. Such as use the following command to run this program and then it has multiple blank lines (3 to 4) and then a command that is not actually shown as a console command i.e no prompt shown so it looks like it is the answer to the run code not the command to run it. Maybe ok visually but a bit confusing when using braille.

This is al a good discussion but it does not answer my question.  For some pages I can modify the html and make it readable, however there a number of sites out in the wild that use the <code>...</code> to show coding.  I would like to be able to read that code without having to download and reformat the pages.  So is it possible to have lynx read those segments or do I need to modify lynx itself?

What webpage?
I try something bracketed by <code>...</code> and with no trouble clearly see it in Lynx. Furthermore, I tryed also an unknown entity and found that Lynx simply ignored that. Therefore, in your case it is not ignored, but turned into something else. If it were <script>, I would expect it to disappear.
