Actually, he referred to fancyvrb. I suggested \savebox/\usebox instead because I reasoned that \raisebox is not reasonable with multiline content.

I wonder whether posters really should be asked to RTFAQ.
The UK FAQ is often nice to read, but finding something specific may be difficult.
I have no better idea to enter "verbatim box" in this case, but you will not find "label=verwithin" this way soon.
And in this special case you then still have to read a lot about the varieties of the problem until you find the solution for your special problem.

Cheers,

Uwe.
