Let me write my code:

<Label Text="{Binding text}" TextType="Html"/>

If,

text = "<pre>Hello      user<BR/>How     are you</pre>"

But the output is shown as:

Hello user
How are you

So how we can preserve all white spaces inside pre tag.

    Hello,

    Welcome to Microsoft Q&A!

    The Html style does not support <pre> based on my test .

    I even tried to use HtmlLabelPlugin , but still no luck , same result .

    If you want to display the html perfectly , I suggest you use WebView .

    Code
       var browser = new WebView();  
                   var htmlSource = new HtmlWebViewSource();  
                   htmlSource.Html = @"<html><body>  
         <pre>Hello      user<BR/>How     are you</pre>  
         </body></html>";  
                   browser.Source = htmlSource;  
         
                   Content = browser;  
    
    Result
