Can <pre> contain nested tabs?
Hello! I can't find the answer to this question: is it a valid html to have nested tags inside the <pre></pre> block?
For example: <pre>my text here<blockquote>something here</blockquote> more text <div class='someclass'>some text inside div</div> more text</pre>
Is this valid or not?

When asking about the basics, one should first read the manual.
See §9.3.4 Preformatted text: The PRE element. There you will find that it may hold only inline stuff, except for some specific exclusions. So, no, you may not nest a blockquote within pre, but span is ok.
See Poetry and verse in the html page for examples of usage.

Thank you. I'll use span instead of blockquote and hopefull my html will remain valid.
