Without using additional attributes, I don't see much difference in the specs:


"Designates a fragment of computer code."



"The code element represents a fragment of computer code. This could
be an XML element name, a filename, a computer program, or any other
string that a computer would recognize.

Although there is no formal way to indicate the language of computer
code being marked up, authors who wish to mark code elements with the
language used, e.g. so that syntax highlighting scripts can use the
right rules, may do so by adding a class prefixed with "language-" to
the element."
