Use the LaTeX short form:   \verb|movl %eax,%edx|
for something short like this.
You really only need the longer form for multi-line content.

With tricky environments such as {verbatim} {comment} {latexonly} etc.
LaTeX2HTML scans for the ending delimiter to be on a line by itself.

Maybe, but it's poor visual style that makes your manuscript hard to 
and to detect the structure of the information within it.

Hope this helps,
