Not surprisingly, this does indeed yield a phylogenetic tree as follows:
Cyclostomes Bony Fish Cart. Fish Amphibia Reptiles Mammals
----------- --------- ---------- -------- -------- -------
\ \ / \ \ /
\ \ / \ \ /
\ \ / \ \ /
\ \/ \ \/
\ \ \ /
\ \ \ / Amniota

\ \ \ /
\ \ \ /
\ \ \/
\ \ /
Jawless \ \ / Terrestrial Vert.
Vertebrates \ \________________/

\ / Jawed Vertebrates

Vertebrates
Furthermore, on page 287 Denton applies the same technique to primates:
________________________________

| | | | | | | |
| | | Apes | | Man | | |
| | | | | | | |
| | \_________/ \___________/ | |
| \____________________________/ |
\________________________________/
From which we get the following phylogenetic tree:
Monkeys Gibbon Apes Man
------- ------ ---- ---

I used the face dbcode to change the font to courier within the pre tags, and it seems to work. I have the same problem with the format in the OP, using Win10 and Chrome. I suspect it has something to do with the default font for pre?
On further examination, leading white spaces appear to be stripped.

Re: A Little Testing
It wasn't working for me previously, but now everything is displaying correctly. It looks fixed on my side.
